TOWN OF ANDOVER 



2003 ANNUAL REPORT 







^^^^^ 



PREPARED BY THE TOWN MANAGER 

PURSUANT TO THE PROVISIONS OF CHAPTER 40, 

SECTION 49 OF THE GENERAL LAWS OF THE 

COMMONWEALTH OF MASSACHUSETTS AND 

ARTICLE II, SECTION 4 OF THE GENERAL BY-LAWS OF 

THE TOWN OF ANDOVER 



ABOUT THE COVER . . . 



THE ANDOVER GAR FLAG 



The Andover GAR flag belonged to the General William F. Bartlett GAR Post 
99 which was made up of Andover 's Civil War Veterans. The GAR (Grand Army of 
the Republic) was founded nationally in 1866 as an organization of Union veterans. 
Andover's veterans named their post in honor of General Bartlett, an 1858 graduate 
of Phillips Academy, who became a general at the age of 24 and is immortalized in 
the movie 'Glory'. This flag is one of two GAR flags recorded as belonging to the 
Andover Post. It is probably the same flag cited in a letter dated January 6, 1928. 
This letter announced that the Andover GAR post was disbanding and their first flag, 
given by the Women's Relief Corp, would be donated to Memorial Hall. The 
Women's Relief Corp was founded in 1889 as an auxiliary to the GAR. The Corp 
pledged to assist Union veterans, their widows and orphans and it was these 
enterprising women who were instrumental in the presentation of war memorials and 
flags as well as organizing the GAR's social events. 

The GAR flag was conserved in 2003 by Camille Myers Breeze and Janice R. 
William of Musuem Textile Services in Tewksbury, MA. A dedication ceremony will 
be held in Memorial Hall at the Memorial Hall Library on February 29, 2004. 

Donations to defray the cost of conserving the GAR flag may be made payable 
to the Trustees of Memorial Hall Library. With a donation of $100.00 you can 
adopt one of the flag's 38 stars or with a donation of $250.00 you can adopt one of 
the flag's 13 stripes. Star and stripe patrons will be named on a plaque to be 
displayed in Memorial Hall at the Memorial Hall Library next to the conserved flag.

The Town of Andover, more than a place to live, is a way of life. 

Its legacy of democracy shall be preserved. Each citizen should experience the treasures 

of nature, history, individual respect, neighborhood, and learning. As resources and energy 

allow, each of these gifts from the past will be enriched in the present for those yet to be.

Dear Fellow Citizens: 



Thank you for making Andover one of the best places to live and work in the 
Merrimack Valley and perhaps across the state! Despite financial concerns, we have 
managed to keep our Aaa rating from Moody's Investment Service. People continue to 
desire to live in Andover and new businesses locate here. Our schools produce very well- 
educated students and, as I write this, our sports teams continue to excel. Andover 
continues to be a leader in quality of life - other communities call us to ask how we do 
what we do. We are an important partner in many regional and State groups and often are 
the leaders in these efforts to find better ways to serve the needs of the Commonwealth. 

Much of the past year has been focused on the budget and the impact of a 
$2,000,000 reduction in State funding combined with rising health insurance costs. This 
has been compounded by the slow economy that resulted in fewer new projects in Town, 
thus less growth in new taxes than in prior years. Some of the decreases in revenue have 
been offset by increases in fees (school bus fees, building fees, even fees to get your 
fingerprints done) while we look for efficiencies wherever possible. 

More and more new housing built in Town is on marginal land because of wetlands 
or sharp slopes. This creates extra challenges for the volunteers who serve on the Planning 
Board, the Zoning Board of Appeals, the Conservation Commission and the Board of 
Health, as well as for our employees in these Divisions. Alternately, we are also seeing 
many "teardowns" that remove small houses and build large homes. Both of these trends 
are adding to the problem of affordability. We must consider the impact of this in the 
coming years as we struggle with how to keep Andover an affordable community. 

However, Andover is positioned well for the future. For instance, the Vision 21 
Committee is looking at these and other issues such as transportation and sustainability 
into the next twenty years. I recommend that you find out how you can contribute to their 
work so that all opinions can be represented. Another collaborative effort, the Main Street 
Committee involving businesses and property owners as well as residents, has led to a very 
positive plan for upgrading our downtown area in conjunction with an approved state 
grant. 



These are only two examples of how Andover continues to receive excellent 
participation from citizen volunteers, from a well-trained work force and from committed 
leadership. It is this participation and commitment that will allow us to remain a strong 
and vital community. There are challenges ahead, no doubt about it, but together we will 
maintain the ability to accomplish our goals. 

Thank you once again for your encouragement and participation over the past year. 

Respecfully submitted, 




John P. Hess 

Chairman 

Andover Board of Selectmen

To the Honorable Board of Selectmen and Citizens of the Town of Andover: 



Early in 2003, the State-wide fiscal problems that began in 2001 hit the Town with 
dramatic impact. No sooner did Governor Mitt Romney take office in January then his 
administration exercised their Chapter 9(c) powers and reduced local aid mid-year. The Town's 
reduction was $173,399. As Town Manager, I issued a directive to all departments to hold 
spending to a minimum to account for a January reduction in State funds and in anticipation of 
further cuts in FY-03. The additional reduction did not materialize, but the FY-04 local aid was 
reduced by over $1.9 million! 

The Annual Town Meeting approved an operating budget (Article 4) of $108,020,404 or 
2.6% over FY-2003. After factoring out increases in fixed costs and other obligations, the Town 
and School Departments were basically level-funded which resulted in necessary reductions to 
staffing levels and expense budgets. A total of 13 FTE were reduced from the Town 
departments and 26.7 FTE were reduced from the School Department. 

The Annual Town Meeting was one of the least attended in recent memory with 604 
people attending the first night and 570 the second night. There were sixty- two warrant articles 
compared to over one hundred in the late nineties! 

Voters at the Annual Town Meeting did support the appropriation of $4.48 million to 
improve the Water Treatment Plant by replacing the ozone purification system. 

Susan and Fred Stott were honored at the Annual Town Meeting as the recipients of the 
Virginia Cole Community Service Award for 2003. They have demonstrated to the citizens of 
Andover that service to others is their way of life. Fred's service includes membership on the 
Finance Committee and the 350 th Anniversary Committee. Susan's service includes membership 
on the Planning Board, Andover Housing Partnership/Fair Housing Committee and Andover 
Community Trust. 

The Public Safety Center's Fire Station phase was approximately 80% complete as of the 
end of the year. The contractor got off to a slow start with this phase during the Winter months 
of January through March but as soon as the Spring arrived there was a noticeable "uptick" in 
construction activity. By December, the exterior work was almost complete and the windows 
and overhead doors were being installed. 



The Town's four-phased sewer project made good progress during the year. The 
construction of the South Main Street/Ballardvale area sewer contracts #2 and #3 was actively 
underway but had to suspend work in December due to the onset of Winter conditions. Contract 
#1 was completed in 2002 and Contract #4 will begin in the Spring of 2004. 

During the Summer months, the Board of Selectmen, Town Manager and Department 
Heads met to develop a Mission and Vision Statement. It was felt that we needed to define our 
values and mission in order to move ahead as the Town's elected and appointed leader. This 
project resulted in the creation of a Mission Statement and a series of six Value Statements that 
the Town's political leaders and senior managers will use as a guide in decision-making. 

After twenty years of work in creating affordable housing, an important milestone was 
reached. Within the past two years, an additional 580 housing units were approved by the 
Zoning Board of Appeals. This brought the Town's affordable percentage to 1 1 .39%. 

In the late Fall of 2003, John F. Canavan, Jr., the Town's Highway Superintendent 
retired. He picked a fine time to retire . . . just before the beginning of the 2004 snow and ice 
season. He passed on the responsibilities of keeping us safe during the Winter to Christopher M. 
Cronin. Chris comes to the job after being the Assistant Town Engineer for eight and a half 
years. 

At the Annual Town Election in March, the voters returned James D. Doherty for his 26 th 
term as Town Moderator. Arthur H. Barber and Anthony J. James were elected to the School 
Committee. These gentlemen replaced Frank Eccles and Gerald Gustis. Voters also returned 
Brian P. Major and Ted E. Teichert to the Board of Selectmen. 

The fiscal challenges that were with us in the beginning of 2003 stayed with us until the 
end of the year. The budget for the next fiscal year looks almost as austere as the current one. 
You can help shape the Town's budget and our future by voting at the Annual Town Election on 
Tuesday, March 23 rd and participating in the Annual Town Meeting on April 26 and 27, 2004. 

Respectfully submitted, 

^Reginald S. Stapczyns 
Town Manager

during the budget process which resulted in a recommendation to increase program fees to 
further offset expenses. A revenue goal of $507,000 was set. Course fees were increased to 
between 8% and 20%. At the same time, setting seasonal priorities on staffing helped reduce 
salaries as well as expenses for the Summer programs.

Recreation and Park Association for the flag football programs and a $1,100 gift from an 
English Chapter of St. Matthew's Masonic Lodge to support playground scholarships for

ELDER SERVICES DIVISION 

"Bridges", an intergenerational curriculum linking generations, was implemented at the 
Bancroft School. Over seventy 4 l grade students and twenty seniors met weekly for eight 
weeks to discuss a variety of topics including "Schools Then and Now", "Ethnicities, 
Heirlooms and Traditions" and "The Life Span". Students discovered that they have more in 
common with seniors than they have differences. Seniors welcomed the opportunity to 
interact with the students and to see the schools and students of today in a meaningful way. 
This model of healthy aging fosters a positive view of aging as a life-long process. 

"Healthy Eating For Successful Living in Older Adults", a community-based nutrition 
program was developed with funding through the Lahey Clinic in conjunction with the 
National Institute of Health and the National Council on Aging. Over sixty seniors 
participated in the pilot project which relies on both the curriculum and peer support. 
Participants found that sharing information, recipes and skills was extremely beneficial to 
them and to their success in the program. 

YOUTH SERVICES DIVISION 

Created quality programs in four areas: recreation, social, support and education, serving 
over 7,000 participants. 

Continued to serve the Town with dedicated involvement in community service projects and 
events such as the Larry Robinson World Without Cancer Road Race, the Community Read- 
Along, the Read- Across America program and the Service Club's Annual Cookout for 
Special Needs adults. 

Repeated the success of previous Summer programs with our highest numbers ever. The 
AYS Summer Program maintained a diverse offering of clinics, trips and activities for young 
people in middle school and high school. All trips were filled to capacity and feedback was 
positive.

FTNANCF A. BUDGEI DEPARTMENT 

The mission of the Finance Department is to build and reinforce confidence in Town 
financial management by managing and planning all financial functions in an efficient, cost 
effective and responsive manner, and, through a collaboration of team efforts, provide departments 
and the public with the necessary information to assure accuracy, accountability and justification. 

FTNANCF ADMINISTRATION 

The Town Manager's Recommended Fiscal Year 2004 Budget was released on February 7, 
2003. During the months of February, March, and April meetings were held with the Board of

warrant article requests and prepare recommendations for the Annual Town Meeting. 

In April, the Finance Committee Report was mailed to over 11,300 households. The 
Annual Town Meeting began on Monday, April 28, 2003 and the Fiscal Year 2004 operating 
budget (Article 4) was adopted in the amount of $108,020,404. This budget was an increase of 
2.7% from the fiscal year 2003 operating budget of $105,178,162. (See the TAX RATE RECAP

costs that do not require town meeting votes)

information that is available to the general public. Exterior digital photos are now recorded on most 
properties and the total valuations are available on the Town's web page. More than one thousand

TOWN COUNSEL 



During 2003, Town Counsel made numerous appearances before State Courts and 
Administrative Boards. Formal legal opinions were researched and rendered to Town officials. 
Court challenges to decisions by the Town's boards and commissions were defended by Town 
Counsel. In particular, the Conservation Commission's denial of a project pursuant to the 
Town's wetlands protection bylaw was upheld by the Essex County Superior Court. 

Town Counsel had conferences with the Town Manager and other Town officials on 
almost a daily basis. Town Counsel reviewed all warrant articles and attended all Town 
Meetings. During the period covered by this report, contracts were drawn and reviewed and 
numerous deeds, easements, releases and agreements were drafted and recorded. In particular, 
many easements were drafted for the on-going expansion of the Town's sewer system. An 
Agreement with the City of Lawrence was drafted by Town Counsel and signed by the City of 
Lawrence to relocate certain of Andover's sewer lines in Lawrence to allow construction of new 
schools in Lawrence. 

Town Counsel also assisted in drafting legislation which was submitted to the state 
legislature for changes to the Town's charter in accordance with Town Meeting authorization.

TOWN CLERK 

The mission of the Town Clerk 's Office is to uphold the integrity of the Town 's democratic 
process, to maintain and preserve public records and to act in the best interest of the community and 
the State by providing innovative, efficient, quality services. 



The Town Clerk's Office, with the assistance of volunteers, completed a database index of 
the Zoning Board of Appeals records that fall under the care and custody of their office. The index 
will provide the Town with easy access for cross-referencing and research. It will be updated 
periodically and the data will be shared with the Community Development & Planning Department 
through the Town's computer network. 

A searchable scanning program was used to scan the Board of Selectmen and Town Meeting 
minutes. This program will protect the longevity of the records, provide easy access, shorten 
research time and offer Town departments the capabilities to scan future records. 

The passport service provided by the Clerk's Office continues to be a good source of revenue 
for the Town. In August, 2002, the State increased the agent's fee from $15.00 to $30.00 and the 
Town's revenues for this service have increased accordingly. 



DEPARTMENT STATISTICS:

POLICE DEPARTMENT 

The mission of the Andover Police Department is to protect our future and the quality of life 
in Andover. We are empowered to protect life and property, but, with the changing times of 
increasing social programs, our agency has become more service-oriented to the community. To 
continue our mission, we all maintain an open door policy to the community, working with their 
suggestions, needs and thoughts so that we may preserve the way of life that we all enjoy in Andover. 



The Andover Police Department is committed to providing the highest level of public safety 
and service to the citizens and business people within the community. The members of the 
Department are empowered to enforce the laws of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts and the 
Bylaws of the Town of Andover, to ensure that the peace and tranquility of our neighborhoods are 
maintained and that crime and the fear of crime are reduced. The Department emphasizes integrity, 
honesty, impartiality and professionalism from its members creating an environment that values 
differences and fosters fairness and flexibility in our mission. The Department encourages citizen 
input and interaction that will assist in developing sound partnerships between the community and 
the Police. Working together will protect our future and enhance the quality of life for everyone 
within the Town. 



OPERATIONS DIVISION 

The Department handled 31,245 incidents in 2003. There were 448 arrests, 5 rapes, 384 
larcenies and 64 burglaries. 

The Town experienced a 9% decrease in larceny during the year, however, burglaries to 
residences and businesses saw a 25% increase. Domestic violence incidents also increased 40% from 
previous years. 

The Department issued 5,666 motor vehicle citations during the year which is down 13% 
from the previous year. There were 1,177 motor vehicle accidents handled by the Department - a 
1 0% decrease from the previous year. 

The Police Department continued to work closely with other Town departments, agencies and 
the community throughout the year. The Sub-Stations, located in Brookside Estates and on 
Grandview Terrace, continued to allow the Department to form a partnership with the residents of 
Brookside Estates, the Andover Housing Authority and the Youth Services Department through the 
New Horizons for Youth Grant Program. 

The Department also participated in numerous events including the Christmas and Memorial 
Day Parades, the Fourth of July celebrations, Safety Saturday, Bazaar Days, the Feaster Five Road 
Race on Thanksgiving Day as well as numerous other road races held during the year. 



29 



RECORDS DIVISION 

The Records Division provides support services to the entire Police Department. This service 
enables information to flow efficiently throughout the Department as well as to the entire 
community. 

The Police Department received more than $128,300 in new grant money during 2003. These 
grants allow the Department to serve the community by providing funding for personnel and other 
resources. Equipment grants allowed the Department to provide car safety seats and bicycle helmets 
to those who would otherwise not be able to afford such safety items. Emergency equipment such as 
Geiger counters, body armor, gas masks, ATV's and trailers, protective screening, defibrillators and 
other emergency communication equipment were also purchased with this grant money. Highway 
Safety grants allowed for extra patrols and enforcement around high accident locations. The New 
Horizon for Youth Grant allowed the Department to continue working with at-risk youths. 

The Court Section processed a total of 448 arrests. This included tracking all Police 
Department cases from inception to disposition and coordinating officers' appearances in court. In 
addition, this section assists in tracking District Court cases for other Town Departments such as the 
Health Division, Building Division, etc. 



DETECTIVE DIVISION 

The Detective Division is responsible for the follow up of investigations conducted by the 
agency. The Detective Division also oversees the Substance Abuse Unit. This Unit was created in 
response to the community's request for the Police Department to take a more active role in 
combating drugs and alcohol in the Town. In addition, two officers were trained in technical 
services such as fingerprint identification techniques and crime scene processing and four officers 
were trained in rape investigation. The Division also has one investigator assigned as a Juvenile 
Officer. He works closely with the schools and courts in processing Juvenile cases. 

The Detective Division continued to be actively involved in follow-up investigations 
throughout the year. The Division was instrumental in solving and identifying the perpetrators of 
numerous serious crimes as well as following the cases through the judicial system. 

The Detective Division followed up and investigated 64 burglaries, six rapes and 384 
larcenies. The Police Department experienced a large increase in the number of reported burglaries 
this year. 

The Division also investigates incidents on the Internet. They recognize this new aspect of 
Internet crime as a major problem to our community and caution all parents and residents of the 
Town to be vigilant in combating this increasing problem. 



30 



ANIMAL CONTROL 

The Animal Control Officer answered 822 calls for service in 2003. He responded to 307 dog 
complaints and impounded 76 dogs and 4 cats. He also removed 1 83 deceased animals. In addition 
to these removed animals, there were 36 deer struck and killed by motor vehicles in Town. 



EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT 

The Emergency Management Division is directed by the Chief of Police and serves as the 
local link to the Federal and State Emergency Management Agencies (FEMA/MEMA), the 
Department of Homeland Security and the FBI"s Joint Terrorism Task Force. It also includes a 
network of HAM radio operators that are on standby should the need arise for auxiliary radio 
services. 

The Chief of Police is also the Town's Liaison with the regional Local Emergency Planning 
Committee (LEPC) and is responsible for coordinating the Town's response to any hazardous 
materials incident. 

The Auxiliary Police assisted the regular officers of the Police Department many times 
throughout the year. They are particularly active during the holidays and on Halloween. They are a 
very dedicated group of volunteers and the Town is fortunate to have their services as a resource.

MEMORIAL HALL LIBRARY 

The mission of the Memorial Hall Library is to make available a broad range of library 
materials, to provide up-to-date and accurate information, to offer services and programs 
desired by the community of Andover, to act as the most convenient point of access for the 
needed materials and information, to actively seek to make community members and 
organizations aware of library resources and services, and to utilize technology and the Internet 
to the fullest possible extent in carrying out this mission. 



As with the Schools and other Town departments, the Library has suffered through these 
times of tight budget constraints. A 24% reduction in State funding for regional services resulted 
in a $113,000 cut in Andover's library budget. Reference services, Inter-Library loan and 
Supplementary Collections for regional members were the areas hit the hardest. 

Despite budget cuts, library services for the Andover community continued to expand. 
The most startling increase in use has been by the middle and high school age students who 
come to visit the Library's new TEENZ area after school, evenings and on the weekends. The 
Library has offered this service with a minimum of staffing and there is still much that can be 
done to enhance this service with additional staffing in the future. 

Circulation of library materials has increased thanks to the ease of reserving items over 
the online catalog. Library users are checking out more books-on-tape, compact discs, 
videotapes and DVDs than ever. Circulation of these items is up 71% over the past 5 years. In 
addition to being able to reserve materials from the comfort of home, Library users can also 
renew materials and find out what items they have checked out using their home PC. The use of 
24/7, the Library's on-line reference service, continued to expand as well with more than 200 
questions being answered a month and a 90% satisfaction rate. 

Library programs for Children and Adults are an important part of our services. The 
Friends of Memorial Hall Library support these programs through their work at book sales and 
other special fundraising efforts. This was the second year of "Jazz at the Hall" and we are 
grateful to the Danvers Savings Bank for their sponsorship of this program. 

The Board of Library Trustees, the Friends of the Library, the Seniors from the Senior 
Voucher Program and the other volunteers who together put in more than 8,000 hours of work in 
2003 are all commended for their work in making the Library shine at the heart of this 
community. They prove, once again, that "Libraries will get you through times with no money 
better than money will get you through times with no libraries " 

2003 Accomplishments: 

The Library continued to utilize technology to save money and increase productivity. A 
public pay-for-printing system was installed in the Reference area that will save 
approximately $4000/year in printing supplies as well as generate added revenue. The 
Information Technology Department also introduced an online Andover forum for the 



37 



Town's citizens to use to share their ideas about Town Meeting topics. WiFi wireless 
Internet access was introduced so patrons can use their own laptops to access the Internet at 
the Library. Email notification has greatly increased thus saving thousands of dollars in 
postage costs. 

The Children's Room and Young Adult Department both increased programming. The 
Children's Room added babies to their storytime schedule and the Young Adult Area began 
an Anime club. The teens helped provide programs for kids through their assistance with 
Harry Potter Day, art programs for kids and a chess club. A junior Friends of the Library 
was established. 

Reference has continued to expand its activities in providing information 24 hours a day, 7 
days a week. In addition to increased usage of this popular service, Library staff have 
presented training programs to other librarians through the state-wide MassAnswers program 
and a talk at the N.H. Library Association Conference. The article, "We jumped on the live 
reference bandwagon...", written by two MHL reference librarians, appeared in the April, 
2003 issue of Computers in Libraries. Over 3000 patrons are now signed up for email alerts. 

Community Services presented more than 139 programs including two "Jazz at the Hall" 
concerts. More than 10,000 people attended these programs. Fishing and genealogy 
continue to be very popular subjects for programs. The Friends book sales all-time high 
receipts. 

The Circulation and Technical Processing Department carried out innovations to save money 
and increase staff productivity. The documentary video collection was re-merged with the 
boxes and placed in plastic boxes to reduce staff time involved in circulating these materials 
and increase their visibility. The selection of a new vendor for the purchase of videos will 
save money and increase service. 

Memorial Hall Library was awarded a two-year $30,000 Library Services and Technology 
Grant to provide services for people with disabilities, a $7,800 grant from the Andover Home 
for the Aged to purchase, install and configure new hardware and software for seniors at the 
Drop-In Center at Old Town Hall and a $6,000 grant from the Andover Home for the Aged 
to purchase audiobooks. 

The Memorial Hall Library staff again showcased their popular MHL Book Cart Drill Team 
routine in the Santa Parade with fourteen staff and four family members participating.

HEALTHY COMMUNITIES TOBACCO CONTROL PROGRAM 

The Healthy Communities Tobacco Program's primary goal in the year 2003 was to enforce 
Andover' s bylaws which prohibit the sale of tobacco products to minors. Healthy Communities, a 
State program funded through excise taxes on cigarettes and a master settlement agreement between 
tobacco companies and the states' Attorney Generals, serves as an agent to the Andover Board of 
Health on tobacco control issues. 



45 



Healthy Communities also serves the Boards of Health in Dracut, Methuen, Middleton, North 
Andover, North Reading, Reading, Stoneham and Topsfield. Due to spending cuts effective June 30, 
2003 the program was eliminated for almost three months until it resumed with a substantial 
reduction in funding in late September 2003. 

Questions or comments on tobacco control laws (including issues of smoking in public 
places, smoking cessation resources, and tobacco sales to minors) can be directed to Healthy 
Communities at 978-749-8999. 

Youth Smoking Rates 

In Massachusetts, from 1 995 to 2001 , the smoking rate among youth has declined from 36% 
to 26% while falling more slowly in the country as a whole (from 35% to 29%). Prior to 1995, youth 
smoking rates had been rising for both Massachusetts and the nation. 

Tobacco Sales to Youth 

In an effort to curb tobacco sales to youth, Healthy Communities conducts quarterly 
compliance checks to make certain local establishments adhere to laws prohibiting sales of tobacco 
to minors. During these compliance checks, 16 and 17-year-old youth, under the supervision of 
Healthy Communities' staff, enter stores asking to purchase cigarettes. If a sale is made, a fine is 
issued. In cases of second and third offenses, the Andover Board of Health has suspended the 
tobacco sales license of the establishment. 

Tobacco Sales Rates to Youth in Andover 

Over the past three years, Healthy Communities has recorded the number of illegal tobacco 
sales to youth during its compliance checks. In 2001, of the 60 compliance checks made, 12% 
resulted in illegal tobacco sales (7 sales). Once again, in 2002, 12% of 43 compliance checks 
resulted in sales (5 sales). 

In 2003, the rate of illegal tobacco sales in Andover increased from 12% to 14% (6 illegal 
sales out of 44 compliance checks). The rate of illegal tobacco sales to youth in Andover remains at 
about the state average of 12%. In February of 2003, Andover showed signs of great improvement 
with zero sales out of fifteen compliance checks. However, there was bad news in April with five 
stores making illegal sales out of the fifteen establishments checked. Fortunately, the latest statistics 
are encouraging, with only one illegal tobacco sale out of fourteen compliance checks in November. 



46 



PLANNING DIVISION 

The mission of the Planning Division is to ensure the orderly growth and development of the 
Town through sound planning practices and through the implementation of the recommendations of 
the Master Plan. 



Despite the chill in the economic climate, development activities in Andover continued in 
2003. As evidenced by the figures on the following page, nearly all of the elements of the Planning 
Division's workload actually increased over 2002 levels. 

The Planning staff continued to take an active role in all aspects of comprehensive permit 
applications for affordable housing developments. This included conducting preliminary reviews 
with the Andover Housing Partnership Committee, providing recommendations, and offering 
professional assistance to the Zoning Board of Appeals and the Board of Selectmen. 

Andover's affordable housing inventory finally broke the 10% threshold in 2003 and now 
stands at 11.39%. This percentage is vulnerable to future expiring affordable units at Brookside 
Estates and Riverview Commons. The Planning Division actively engaged with the Andover 
Housing Partnership Committee and the Andover Housing Authority in the development of strategies 
to prevent any of those valuable affordable units being lost. One example is the research and 
recommendation made by staff and the Partnership Committee that led to the Board of Selectmen's 
vote to join the North Shore HOME Consortium, a funding source for affordable housing initiatives 
for Andover. Another example was the approval by the voters at the Annual Town Meeting of a new 
zoning by-law designed to encourage single-unit affordable housing in town. 

The Planning Division staff was successful in obtaining E041 8 Housing Certification from 
the State for FY-2004 giving the Town priority status in obtaining discretionary grant funding. Staff 
will complete the Community Development Plan, associated with E0418, in early 2004. This is the 
first step in updating four sections of the 1 992 Master Plan. Division staff continues to work with 
the Vision 21 Committee to help create a Vision Statement for the Town. 

Throughout 2003, the Planning Division continued its efforts toward downtown 
improvements and work on major transportation system projects. Staff provided assistance to the 
Main Street Committee and helped to advance the $2.5 million Main Street project up to FY-2005 on 
the area- wide Transportation Improvement Program. Staff also assisted with the re-design of the 
Olde Andover Village Parking Lot that was re-constructed and completed under the estimated 
budget. The Planning Division assisted the Merrimack Valley Planning Commission and 
Massachusetts Highway Department in the data gathering, compilation and completion of the final 
draft of the 1-93 Corridor Study.

ZONING BOARD OF APPEALS 

The Andover Zoning Board of Appeals is authorized to function under the General Laws 
of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, Chapter 40A, applicable sections of Chapter 40B and 
the Town Zoning Bylaw. The Board meets on the first Thursday of each month in Memorial 
Hall at the Memorial Library, Elm Square. The Board of Selectmen appoints five regular 
members and four associate members. The public hearings by the Board are the result of 
applications in the following areas: 

A variance from the requirements of the Zoning Bylaw; 

A special permit under the Zoning Bylaw; 

A person aggrieved by the decision of the Inspector of Buildings or other 

Administrative official; 

A modification or an extension of a decision; or 

Permission to construct low or moderate-income housing within the Town of 

Andover (Comprehensive Permit, M.G.L. Chapter 40B). 

Prior to the hearings, applications are reviewed and pertinent plans and sketches are 
requested, legal advertisements are published and abutters are notified as required by law. The 
Chairman in conformity with the Board of Appeals Rules and Regulations conducts public 
hearings. Following the hearings, the members of the Board, when deemed necessary, view each 
property in question and hold a deliberation meeting thereafter. Based on the evidence presented 
at the hearing, and the applicable laws, a decision is rendered, signed and filed with the Town 
Clerk and recorded at the Registry of Deeds upon completion of the appeal period.

PARKS AND GROUNDS, CEMETERY & FORESTRY DIVISIONS 

The three Parks and Grounds Divisions (Parks and Grounds, Cemetery and Forestry) are 
independent and interdependent. They operate under the supervision of one superintendent and 
share some equipment and work together on special projects. The three divisions perform many 
tasks seemingly unrelated to their principal horticultural maintenance duties, such as providing 
support to parades and other holiday events, litter control, trash removal, recycling, flagpole 
maintenance, fence/gate/backstop repairs, drainage connections, snow removal, and moving 
heavy items such as the whiskey barrels used as planters in the downtown area and building and 
repairing park benches and tables. 

During 2003 these divisions completed 118 work orders - 83 for the Town and 35 for the 
Schools - totaling $722,257 (labor and materials). 

PARKS DIVISION 

This division maintains over 2.75 million square feet of ball fields and 1.4 million square 
feet of lawn areas. Ball fields and lawns are located on all School grounds and other Town 
property including Recreation Park, Ballardvale Playground, Upper and Lower Shawsheen, the 
Bowling Green, Town owned parks, playgrounds and designated islands, triangles and other 
parcels throughout the Town. Ball fields are prepared (groomed and lined) for all secondary 
school athletic events. Turf maintenance consists of mowing, aerating, watering, over-seeding, 
liming fertilizing and weed and insects control. Pesticide operations are conducted by trained 
and licensed personnel using approved pesticides and application methods. This division also 
maintains small trees, shrubs and shrub beds on Town property and is responsible for snow 
removal at all Town buildings.

This division of the Plant and Facilities Department is responsible for scheduling and renting 
school facilities evenings, weekends and holidays, as well as scheduling and renting School and 
Town athletic fields, Recreation Park and the Town House function facility on Main Street. 

One of the major accomplishments of this past fiscal year was the department's work with 
the Town Manager's newly formed Athletic Fields Working Group. This collaboration with the 
Town Manager and representatives of the sports leagues has resulted in an ongoing partnership 
that began with increasing and improving the communication between the sports groups that use 
the fields and the Town divisions that schedule and maintain the fields. Ongoing objectives 
include creating and implementing strategies to improve the condition of existing fields as well 
as the creation of new fields in Town. 

Schools 

The total number of school rentals and uses during 2003 was 9,716 - a 5 % increase from 
2002. Halfway through the year, the office began scheduling space at the two new schools - 
High Plain Elementary School and Wood Hill Middle School. Overall gymnasium space 
continues to comprise the majority of the rental and scheduling contracts. Cafeteria and 
auditorium contracts account for the second and third greatest number of uses.

Fields 

School and Town playing fields continue to be rented to capacity due to the growing 
number of participants in local youth and sports leagues as well as the growth of additional 
Andover High School and AYS boys and girls Lacrosse teams. 

The number of scheduled field rentals and uses in 2003 increased by 386 as compared to 
the previous year. The reason for these increases was the availability of fields at the new schools 
in the Spring of 2003. Andover youth sports organizations such as the Andover Soccer 
Association and Andover Little League continue to schedule the majority of field spaces with 
scheduling for Town-sponsored recreation programs, Andover Junior Football, Andover Girls 
Softball League and the Andover adult sports leagues making up the remainder of the scheduled 
uses. Due to the great demand for practice and game space by local youth leagues, less than 1% 
of the total number of rentals consisted of private groups or business organizations. 

The expansion of high school, DCS and AYS programs continue to draw more 
participants each year - many of whom play more than one outdoor sport each season. This has 
added to the existing scheduling constraints on Town and School fields which are booked to 
capacity Monday through Saturday each week during each sport season.

DEPARTMENT OF PUBLIC WORKS 

The mission of the Department of Public Works is to continuously improve our quality of 
life by providing the finest potable water, state-of-the-art disposal of our wastes (liquid and 
solid) and provide safe travel on our road network. 

ENGINEERING 

The Engineering Division prepared construction plans, cost estimates, specifications and 
bids, performed field layouts, inspections and construction supervision on projects such as: new 
sidewalk construction on Salem Street from Prospect Road to Rte 125; the completion of new 
sidewalks on Forest Hill Drive (River Road to Cross Street), Cross Street (Forest Hill Drive to 
High Plain Road) and High Plain Road (Pendant Court to High Meadow Lane); water main 
construction on Lewis Street, Buxton Court and Brady Loop; curb installation and parking lot 
reconstruction at the Olde Andover Village Parking lot; and drainage construction at six various 
locations. The Division also performed field surveys and designs to prepare for upcoming 
construction projects such as: sewer main reconstruction on York Street and Balmoral Street. 

The Engineering staff also assisted and coordinated with consultants, contractors and 
residents during the design and construction of the sewer extensions for the Contracts No. 1, 2 & 
3 of the South Main Street/Ballardvale Road Areas, Rogers Brook Area and the Forest Hills 
Drive/Cross Street Area. Various duties performed included utility markouts, inspections and 
resolving complaints. Other construction projects included: repairs to the Andover Street Bridge; 
and new Traffic Signals at Dascomb Road/Lovejoy Road. Staff members also assisted and 
coordinated with consultants on the design of other projects such as the Main Street Corridor 
Improvements. Work was also performed with the Town's consultant in developing a 
Stormwater Management Program to meet requirements of the new EPA Phase II Stormwater 
Regulations which became effective on March 10, 2003. Implementation of the program was 
started: gas/oil separators were installed at the Highway garage and Water shop; 197 drainage 
outfalls were located, mapped and inspected. 

Work was also performed to coordinate the development of the Town's GIS system with 
the contractor; install software, review preliminary and final data, check plots and database 
design, development of drainage, water and sewer utility layers and updating of the parcel maps 
for the Town Assessor and printed the necessary copies for other Town Departments. 

Planning and estimating for the resurfacing of twelve Town streets was prepared this 
year, while assistance was given to the Highway Division during the actual work performed on 
nine of these streets. 

Preliminary and Definitive Subdivision Plans and Site Plans were reviewed for the 
Planning Board; checked for design conformance, traffic safety, layout and adequacy of 
proposed roads and utilities. All roads and utilities in new subdivisions and site developments 
such as Black Horse Lane, Cassimere Street, Barron Court, Coachman's Ridge, Eagles Place II 
and numerous other sites were inspected and tested to insure compliance with Town construction 
standards. Performance Bond amounts were calculated as requested by the Planning Board. 



61 



Street opening permits for the installation and repair of various underground utilities by 
Bay State Gas Company, Verizon, Mass Electric, AT&T Broadband and other private 
contractors were issued and the necessary utility markouts and inspections were carried out; 
notably including sewer reconstruction on Haverhill Street for Coachmans Ridge. 

The Engineering Division also provided and maintained records of various utilities, street 
excavations, residential and industrial site development, street layouts and road maintenance.

HIGHWAY 

The Highway Division is responsible for road maintenance, including rebuilding and 
resurfacing of approximately 200 miles of existing roads. During the fall, spring and summer 
month, two sweepers are continuously kept busy cleaning winter sand off all streets and cleaning 
road construction areas. A few days per week the sweepers start work at 5 a.m. to take 
advantage of low traffic and parking conditions. The Highway Division is responsible for the 



62 



maintenance of the Town's sidewalk infrastructure. The Division also assists the Engineering 
Division in inspecting new roads prior to acceptance as public ways. The division is responsible 
for the cleaning and maintenance of all storm water culverts and drainage systems including 
catch basin and pip cleaning as well as maintenance of water courses impaired by beaver dams. 
The Highway Division is the lead agency responsible for snow and ice removal and flood control 
measures; other Town divisions assist in these operations.

SOLID WASTE 

Andover, being a member of the North East Solid Waste Committee (NES WC), has its 
refuse transported and processed at the Regional Waste-to-Energy Plant in North Andover, 
where the refuse is incinerated to generate electricity. The Solid Waste Division oversees the 
mandatory curbside recycling program for newspapers/magazines, junk mail, office paper, 
telephone books, paperboard, steel/tin metal containers, glass, #1 and #2 plastics and aluminum 
containers. The Town negotiated to earn a paper credit when the New England index ("Yellow 
Sheet") price for news #6 is above $30/ton. We earned a total credit of $31,017 last year. The 
Town also maintains a leaf and grass clippings compost site on the High Plain Road, near Bald 
Hill. The Town screens and grinds the material annually with the compost being available to 
Town residents. The Town has expanded the curbside recycling program in FY/01 to include the 
aluminum materials, #1 & #2 plastics and corrugated containers (cardboard).

WATER 

The Water Distribution Division is responsible for the operation and maintenance of 190 
miles of water mains ranging from 6" to 24" in size; 2,713 fire hydrants and 10,510 water service 
accounts. 

The treatment plant processed 2.338 billion gallons (average 6.4 MGD) to produce 2.118 
billion gallons of finish water delivered to the distribution system. Forty-four percent (44%) of 
the water was for residential use, 17% for commercial, and 12% was classified as industrial use. 
Additionally, 1.720 billion gallons was diverted from the Merrimack River to Haggett's Pond 
through the Fish Brook Pump Station. 

During the four compliance periods in 2002 volatile organic compounds, synthetic 
organic compounds, trihalomethanes, haloacetic acids, inorganic compounds, and secondary 
contaminants were monitored. The water system was in compliance with all parameters. There 
were no violations with the Total Coliform Rule and monitoring for Giardia, Cryptosporidium, 
and enteric viruses suggests 99.9% removal of these organisms. 

Scheduled maintenance was completed on treatment plant equipment, including; ozone, 
low service, high service pumps, backwash, chemical feed, and chemical storage units. Over 
300,000 pounds of spent and virgin activated carbon was removed/replaced in filter process 
units. Carbon media in the odor-control system at Shawsheen Station was replaced. 
Momingside, Wobum Street, and Snowberry waste collection systems were placed on-line. Fish 
Brook at the Merrimack River was on-line for 220 days, diverting 1.720 billion gallons to 
Haggetts Pond.

GREATER LAWRENCE SANITARY DISTRICT 

The Greater Lawrence Sanitary District (GLSD) wastewater treatment facility continued 
to provide service to residential, commercial and industrial users in 2001. Since it began 
operation in April 1977, the facility has treated 302 billion gallons of wastewater that was 
previously discharged, untreated, into the Merrimack River. 

Disposal of sewage sludge, the by-product of treatment, is the GLSD's largest single 
expense. It was trucked to Maine, Canada, and Connecticut for disposal. The GLSD recently 
completed construction of a sewage digester that reduces the volume of sludge by nearly 50% 
while producing Methane gas for heating and creating a more environmentally friendly product. 
The sludge to fertilizer plant construction has been completed and has implemented a safe 
economic alternative to landfilling of raw sludge. The GLSD expects to save $1 million per year 
in sludge disposal costs and the savings will be shared by member communities by lower 
operating cost assessments. 

There are currently 48 people staffing the plant. The operation is continuous 24 hours per 
day and 365 days per year. The District Commission meets monthly to address policy matters.

DIVISION OF ELDER SERVICES 

The mission of the Division of Elder Services is to identify-, develop, implement and 
advocate for programs and services designed to enhance the quality of life and independence of 
elders in the community, and to provide a focal point in the community (Senior Center) where 
these programs and services can be easily accessed by elders and their families. 

The Division of Elder Services extends sincere appreciation to all staff, volunteers, 
students, Town officials, businesses and other members of the community who support the 
vision and mission of the Senior Center. 

THE GROWING COMMUNITY OF ELDERS AND THE GROWING NEED FOR 
SERVICES 

The elder population continues to increase nationally and locally. Andover will have 
nearly 10,000 people over age 60 within the next 10 years, about one-third of the total 
population. This single statistic is of primary importance in the Town's Visioning process: will 
we be ready? As more residents seek assistance, either for themselves or for their aging family 
members, the division will continue to create and provide specialized programs and services in 
fulfillment of its mission, as laid out by the Council on Aging, following the charge of the Town 
Meeting of March 12, 1966: 

Identify the total needs of the community's elderly population; 

Educate the community and enlist support and participation of all citizens about these needs; 

Design, promote or implement services to fill these needs, or coordinate existing services in 

the community; 

Promote and support any other programs which are designed to assist elderly in the 

community; and 

Enlist and develop capable volunteers and professional leadership for the purposes stated in 

this Article (35). 

To accomplish these goals, programs are designed to promote good health, nutrition, 
access to services and community life, financial and personal independence and combat 
isolation. We continue to develop creative Intergenerational programs serving both elders and 
young people from pre-school to college age. Our Health, Wellness & Nutrition programs 
continue to provide a wide variety of opportunities to maintain, enhance and improve health. 
Continuing goals and objectives focus on improving social services, educational and recreational 
programs, intergenerational opportunities, building the volunteer corps, and various 
administrative improvements. 

ECONOMIC CONSTRAINTS 

An increased need for services is compounded by decreases in funding. As we struggle 
to maintain core services with fewer resources, we have increased efforts to coordinate with 
other agencies. Advocacy on the state and federal level, grant writing and outside fundraising 
become increasingly important. Fess will take on a more significant role in the budget as well. 



67 



INCREASES IN NEED 

Requests for services tend to increase in difficult economic times. The Senior Center has 
experienced an increase for direct services, including Meals on Wheels, Medical Transportation, 
Friendly Visitors, Senior Connections and other supportive services. In addition, there has been 
a dramatic increase in requests for general information. We expect this trend to continue. As we 
have seen most recently at the federal level with changes in the Medicare program and locally 
with fewer insurance providers and service options, the negative affects of the economy continue 
to impact the elderly population first, and often, most severely. 

SPACE 

Our ability to implement programs and services designed in response to identified needs 
continues to be limited by the constraints of insufficient and inappropriate space. Many programs 
and activities are scheduled off-site, creating administrative and scheduling challenges. Seniors 
interested in participating in programs scheduled off-site often limit their participation to one 
event a day so they won't have to travel between the Senior Center and another site. Others are 
unable to participate in events not scheduled at the Senior Center because accessibility is limited 
by the lack of transportation services. 

THE COUNCIL ON AGING AND THE SENIOR CENTER TASK FORCE 

The Council on Aging has identified advocacy as a major area of focus. The 
demographics and the financial future of the town require a fiscally responsible solution to the 
services and space issues that have been identified. The Senior Center Task Force has worked 
diligently for the past two years to solve this issue. They ask for your support of their warrant 
article that will be presented at Town Meeting. .

DIVISION OF COMMUNITY SERVICES 

The Division of Community Services provides the residents of Andover a myriad of social, 
educational, cultural and recreational opportunities embracing diversity and accessibility for all. 
Community Services strives to rate the pulse of the community and incorporate ideas into valued 
programs for its citizens now and in the future. 

The Division of Community Services (DCS) offers year-round recreational, enrichment and 
cultural programs for residents of all ages. Through the mutual mission of educating its residents, the 
Andover School Department and Community Services have an agreement to open the public schools 
to community use through DCS. After school programs are held system-wide, while the majority of 
the evening adult education programs are housed at Andover High School. In addition to the public 
schools, programs are held at Recreation Park, Pomps Pond, AYS Skate Park, Town House, The 
Park, Senior Center, Greater Lawrence Technical High School and other in-town facilities. 
Community Services prides itself on transfusing residents' ideas into valued programs. Through the 
Division's vigorous efforts, services to the Town's residents are continuously improved. Healthy 
enrollment is attributed to a repertoire of community-based instructors, streamlined registration 
including FAX, VISA/MasterCard, overnight mailbox, and cable TV promotion. The simplified 
registration system allows participants to register through the mail, telephone and at the DCS office. 

Family-oriented activities such as the parent tot swimming lessons, nature walks, summer 
concerts, and the Father/Daughter dances have been very popular. Many of the popular DCS classes 
encourage family participation such as ballroom dancing, cooking, foreign language, crafts, CPR and 
fitness classes. 

DCS instructors come from all segments of the community. Professionals, specialists, hobby 
enthusiasts, homemakers, student interns and retired individuals comprise the teaching and 
leadership staff. This varied instructor base provides the ability to offer diverse programs. The 
majority of the instructional staff reside in Andover; however, in several instances DCS is able to 
bring in quality programs from outside the region. Andover and several other Northshore towns are 
sharing their instructor rosters. Each town has benefited by gleaming experienced instructors in areas 
of needed community interest. This year DCS offered 86 new programs for children and adults. Over 
1 50 classes are offered each tri-semester with recent enrollments totaling 4,389 individuals. Sports 
clinics and leagues for children, photography, soccer, tennis, fencing and archery continue to be the 
most popular programs. In addition to these classes, DCS offers school vacation programs, after 
school skiing, trips, playgrounds, special events and a public swimming program at Pomps Pond. 

Improvements to Rec Park continue. A swing set was added near the pavilion and a 
handicapped swing was added to the Pomps Pond playground area. During the Summer months, 
DCS serves well over 1 3,000 people. Approximately 1 ,600 children participated in programs during 
the month of July. The Fourth of July Pancake Breakfast and Horribles Parade attracts between 3,000 
and 5,000 people each year. Three thousand patriotic citizens eat breakfast while a host of others 
cheer their neighbors, participate in games and activities and enjoy the concert and entertainers. 
Summer Concerts-in-the Park typically attract over 300 persons each week for the family musical 
programs. 



70 



The Andona Society, St. Matthew's Lodge and Massachusetts Department of Transitional 
Assistance provided $3,150 in scholarships to low-income residents to participate in Summer 
programs. DCS awarded $3,000 for alternative service projects to residents in need of assistance in 
order to attend DCS-sponsored activities. 

DCS continues to network with the community to develop programs in cooperation with local 
businesses and Town departments. The Division uses local resources to compliment its full-time 
staff. Six Tax Voucher assistants work along with staff by assisting with registration, general office 
duties and after-school and evening programming. In addition, numerous students perform 
community service hours for school, religious education or the Alternative Sentencing Program. 
Collaboration with the Andover Village Improvement Society (A.V.I.S.) has been very successful. 
Weekend walks on AVIS and conservation land were given free of charge by local wardens. 

DCS assists the community by encouraging healthy lifestyles. A variety of fitness programs, 
courses on wellness are offered through programs such as Alliance for the Mentally 111 (NAMI). A 
workshop and National Awareness Day for students carrying backpacks was a success due to the 
participation of Wood Hill Middle School and High Plain Elementary School students. A DCS staff 
member is the Town's designated representative to the United Way during their yearly pledge efforts. 
Mittens are collected each December at numerous locations around the Town including the public 
schools, Memorial Hall Library and Senior Center. Thousands of mittens are donated to the needy 
through this giving program. DCS also assists residents who are unable to pay tuition, participates in 
an alternative service program in lieu of payment, provides assistance with Town-wide functions for 
PTO fundraising and social organizations. 

As technology improves, DCS keeps pace with the computer age. On-line courses are offered 
monthly through a new service with www.ed2go.com/dcs . This adult program offers an easy way 
learn, is perfect for business use while at work or for learning at home. Participants can update their 
skills, discover a new talent or chart a career path at their own pace. Hundreds of courses are offered 
each month. The beauty of an on-line course is that classes will run regardless of the enrollment size. 

The revolving account continues to assist the Division in its ability to sponsor a variety of 
activities and trips. School vacation programs, Children's Studio for the Arts and Summer Theatre 
Ensemble, violin lessons, John Smith Soccer and a host of day trips are examples of programs that 
are funded through this account. 

Budget cuts over the past year included several Summer seasonal positions - ten "Our Town" 
youth positions and nine playground positions. The loss of these leadership positions is a far greater 
loss than the budget dollars they represent. Many high school and college students start building 
their teaching and health oriented careers right here on Andover' s playgrounds.

DIVISION OF YOUTH SERVICES 

Vie AYS aims to provide young people useful experiences to promote healthy growth and 
development. It is our goal to build a network of affordable, accessible, safe, and challenging 
youth programs that appeal and respond to the diverse interests of young adolescents and their 
families. 

Andover Youth Services (AYS) was established to address the need for an increase in 
recreational, educational, social, and support programs for the middle school and high school 
populations within the community. AYS supplies the youth of Andover with programs, services, 
and activities throughout the year. AYS provides a direct link that connects youth to their 
community. Andover' s young people face many challenges and it is our mission to develop and 
maintain a program that has the ability to be flexible and encourages all youth to use their 
creativity and spontaneity in positive ways. 

The year of 2003 was a challenging and exciting year for Youth Services. Budget cuts 
required the Youth Services to expand our creativity and resources to new heights in order to 
meet the perpetual increase in demand for our services and programs. The fundraising efforts to 
build a Youth Center continued to steamroll with the Christmas tree lot, Telethon and other 
events which brought us closer to our goal. 

The support piece of AYS has continued to flourish with an increase in the community 
service program, our after school adventure-based program, drop in and flexible office hours, 
court-related services, volunteer and intern opportunities, hospital visits, referrals, college and 
employment, recommendations, fundraising for youth programs, crisis intervention, outreach, 24 
hour emergency response, parent support and education, discussion groups and specialized in- 
school groups. 

AYS events provided a community venue for young people to expose their creative 
talents. The 4 th annual Keep It Wild Fashion Show, Shakespeare in the Park and numerous 
concerts and dances attracted thousands of youth and presented unique entertainment 
opportunities for the Town of Andover. 

The AYS opened its first satellite office, called "The Zone", at West Middle School. 
Staffed by the newest member to AYS, Suzie Clarke, this location provided young people with 
an accessible way to connect with Youth Services and the programs we offer. Since its inception 
in November, many new clubs and after school activities have already begun and the ongoing 
success is a model for other schools to follow. 

It is essential to connect with other people, groups and systems already working with 
young people. Andover Youth Services remained dedicated to establishing a community-wide 
network of supportive services for young people. AYS worked directly with the following 
organizations, creating and implementing policy, action items, fundraising and advocacy for 
youth. Each of the following groups concentrates on developing programs, services and 
outreach to those young people who are not connected positively to the community of Andover: 
Andover Youth Council, Andover Youth Foundation, Inc., Andover Community Advocates for 
Resources, Education, and Support (CARES), and AMC Youth Opportunities Program (YOP). 

74 



AYS receives ideas and concepts directly from the young people themselves and then 
take these ideas and empowers the youth to make them happen. By interacting alongside young 
people, whether it is handing out flyers or creating plans for a new youth center, the programs 
the Youth Services creates and implements are immediate reflections of what the youth want and 
need. By staying true to our philosophy, the AYS will continue to provide a diverse range of 
activities, events, groups, and programs for all young people of Andover in the new millennium. 

Programs 

Andover Youth Services Summer Program - Ramble On - May to August 

The Summer of 2003 was another great adventure at the Andover Youth Services. Through a 
series of fun and challenging activities, the young people who participated received a chance 
to express themselves and share their experiences in a positive, supporting environment. 
Over a thousand young people joined the AYS Summer Program. The essence of our 
Summer Program was within the 8 weeks of our Summer experience entitled, Ramble On. 
The program offered a wide variety of trips, adventures and services that attracted the interest 
of middle school students. The program encourages young people to participate and 
experience activities that are new, diverse and challenging. The outdoor adventures (for 
example: rock climbing, backpacking, and kayaking) provide opportunities to teach about 
the value of natural resources in an exciting and fun manner. 

Ultimate Frisbee -Year-round 

Young people indicated they wanted Ultimate Frisbee and AYS provided week-long clinics 
taught by high school mentors and experienced coaches. Based upon the success of the High 
School Ultimate Frisbee teams, middle school boys and girls learned the multiple throws, 
offense and defense strategies and other skills in this face-paced sport. 

Field Hockey - Summer - Fall 

AYS ran a clinic which brought high school students into a mentoring role by providing 

instruction on stick-handling, passing and other elements of the game. 

Basketball, Open Gym - Year-round 

In the AYS tradition of taking new ideas and generating them into programs, a street hockey 
program, Open Gym and AYS High School Summer Basketball League became instant 
successes. The street hockey program gave a group of middle school student the opportunity 
to gather and play pick up games in the summer evenings. Open gym provided a similar pick 
up atmosphere for high school basketball players. The AYS Summer Basketball League was 
designed and developed by a high school senior, Patrick Sullivan, and brought over a 
hundred players and spectators down to the AHS Field House for bi-weekly games and a 
season-ending tournament. 

Lacrosse - Year-round 

Since 1997, AYS has continued to expand Andover' s lacrosse program. The youth league 
experienced an overwhelming increase in enrollment and additional youth teams were added 
for both girls and boys. AYS implemented several Summer Lacrosse programs due to the 
overwhelming demand for year-round Lacrosse programs. Youth Services produced 
successful beginners programs for youths ages 8-10 and pick up leagues for middle school 

75 



boys and girls who wanted to improve upon their skills or learn the sport for the first time. 
Lacrosse has been a year-round effort offering clinics, introductory sessions, and pick up 
sessions. We continue to support this growing program by sustaining year-round fundraising 
efforts, recruiting coaches and volunteers. 

Andover Snowboard Club - December to April 

The Andover Snowboard Club is a group of skiers and riders who share the love for the snow 
and travel to Sugarbush, Mt. Snow, Loon, Sunday River, Stratton for the US Open and more 
for some stellar outdoor recreation. The ASC ventures north monthly and also collaborates 
with the Phillips Academy Snowboard Club. 

Afterschool Programs - September to June 

Flag football, Field Hockey, Learn to Snowboard, Street Hockey, Rock Climbing, spring 
open gym, Ultimate frisbee, Rugby, Middle school Intramurals, Track program, volleyball 
program, Outing Club, Bowling Club, etc. 

Vacation Day Programs - Varies 

Developed a variety of program opportunities during holidays and vacation days for middle 
school and high school students. 

Support Services - Year- round 

Community Service - The willingness of young people to serve their community was 
demonstrated thoroughly over the course of the community service days. The young people 
enthusiastically helped community trails by dragging huge logs and boards to build a bog 
bridge, clearing brush and dead trees to create a new trail, and hacking through brush to 
reclaim an overgrown trail. On another service day we helped out at the Franciscan Center, 
clearing brush and restoring a peace garden. The energy of the youth was focused in a 
manner that verified that young people can make a visible difference in their community. 

Venture Out Program - offers a variety of challenging activities for young men and women. 
We create a powerful group by forming trust and building strong friendships/ relationships. 
The young people are challenged mentally, physically, and socially. By participating in this 
group, the youth will develop vital self-confidence that will carry into every aspect of their 
lives and community. 

Other Support Services include: Drop-in and flexible office hours, Court-related services,

Events 

Keep It Wild Fashion Show - December to June 

The 4 th annual Keep It Wild Fashion Show provided 20 designers and over 50 models a 
venue to expose their creative talents. Student designers sewed outfits and recruited models 
who would showcase their work. The magnitude of the show required that the AHS Field 

76 



House be transformed into an atmosphere of style and fashion with pulsing music and a 100- 
foot runway. 500 people turned out to this unique June event. 

Other Events: Shakespeare in the Park, Larry Robinson Road Race, Comedy Night, Making 
Connections, Parent to Parent Groups in AYS Office, Check it Out - Police Forum, Service 
Club Annual Barbeque. 

Concerts/Shows - Year-round 

AYS collaborates with a variety of young people who are interested in putting on concerts, 
dances and special shows. Each show has its own particulars and on average we produce one 
to two shows per month. Shows in 2003 included: Piebald Concert, Gravy Getdown, The 
Slip, several middle school dances, etc. 

Andover Community Skate Park - May to December 

The Andover Community Skate Park is a positive and safe environment open to all ages and 
abilities, which promotes and encourages individual expression, and learning. The park 
provides a positive atmosphere centered around respect for others and most importantly, fun. 

The Andover Community Skate Park continued to play an influential role at the AYS. Aside 
from normal hours of operation, many young people had the opportunity to participate in 
skateboarding lessons and clinics. High school mentors instructed youth on the various 
skateboarding tricks and ramp riding techniques. The ACSP hosted two professional 
skateboard demonstrations over the summer months bringing in some 400 spectators each 
demo. Skateboard competitions allowed local youth to showcase their honed skills and win 
some prizes at the same time. The Andover Community Skate Park remains an extremely 
positive asset to the community. 

Networking and Advocacy -Year-round 

It is essential to connect with other people, groups, and systems already working with 
young people. The Andover Youth Services is dedicated establishing a community-wide 
network of supportive services for young people. AYS worked directly with the following 
organizations, creating and implementing policy, action items, fundraising, and advocacy for 
youth. Each of the following groups concentrates on developing programs, services, and 
outreach to those young people who are not connected positively to the community of Andover. 

Andover Youth Council 

AYS operates directly with the Andover Youth Council. The Council is comprised of 
thirteen high school students and three adult members chosen from the community at large. 
The mission of the Youth Council is to advocate for all youth, to bring more services 
pertaining to issues relevant to their lives. The goal is to empower young people in the 
community by getting them involved with community organizations, schools, town 
government, in order to create opportunities for youth. The Council has become an official 
part of the Town structure and their office is located in the Town Offices. 



77 



Andover Youth Foundation, Inc. 

A non-profit corporation organized to undertake the construction of a youth center for the 
youth of Andover. 

Andover Community Advocates for Resources, Education, and Support (CARES) 

Andover CARES is dedicated to supporting life affirming choices, fostering resiliency, and 
increasing a sense of belonging in the community of Andover. 

• AMC Youth Opportunities Program (YOP) 

The Appalachian Mountain Club Youth Opportunities Program helps youth workers and 
youth-serving agencies offer educational and recreational outdoor opportunities for their 
youth. The AMC encourages the involvement of all people in its mission and activities and 
their goal is to be a community which is comfortable, inviting, and accessible for people of 
any age, gender, race, religion, ethnicity, ability, sexual orientation or socioeconomic status.. 

Accomplishments 

Created quality programs in four areas: recreation, social, support and education. We 
served over 7000 participants over the course of 2003. 

Provided a variety of service and outreach to young people and their families. Empowering 
young people to making their ideas a reality, listening to concerns and issues, college 
recommendations, referrals, non-traditional office hours, advocacy, collaboration with 
community groups, and a variety of other services provide young people with the help or 
connection they need. 

Collaborated with Friends of Andover Girls Hockey to raise the necessary funds to field the 
first ever AHS Girls Varsity Hockey Team. 

Continued progress in the planning, development and fundraising for the Youth Center. 
Raised over $2 million which included Andover' s first live Telethon that netted 
approximately $90,000 in donations from the community. 

AYS continued to serve the community with dedicated involvement in service projects and 
community events like: The Larry Robinson World without Cancer Road Race, The 
Community Read-A-Long, Read Across America, and the Service Club's Annual Cookout in 
the Park. 

AYS repeated the success of previous Summer programs with another year of high numbers. 
The AYS Summer Program maintained a diverse offering of clinics, trips, and activities for 
young people in middle school and high school. All trips were filled to capacity and 
feedback was resoundingly positive. The AYS Summer Program is unique in its program 
content, participation, operating staff, and overwhelming success. 

Remained active in the community by participating in over a dozen community-based 
organizations addressing youth-related issues.

VETERANS SERVICES 

The mission of the Veterans Services Office is to do whatever is necessary to provide 
Andover veterans with benefits, entitlements and services whether they be medical, administrative, 
financial or quality of life. 



The Veterans Services Office provides or coordinates all state and federal financial, medical 
and administrative benefits to over 3,500 of Andover's veterans and their families. In 2003, the 
Office responded to inquiries or requests from over 825 local veterans and provided direct financial 
assistance for fuel, food, housing, burials and medical needs to several dozen Andover families. The 
Town annually receives reimbursement from the Commonwealth for 75% of the funds provided to 
local veterans under Massachusetts General Laws Chapter 115. 

The Office also planned and coordinated the patriotic observances on Veterans Day, 
Memorial Day, Flag Day, the anniversary of September 1 1 th and placed over 5,500 flags on the 
graves of veterans buried in Andover. Band concerts and other civic activities during the year were 
also handled by the Veterans Services Office. 

Formal ceremonies were held on Memorial Day, Flag Day, July 4 th , V-J Day, POW/MIA 
Day, Veterans Day and Pearl Harbor Day. 

A major highlight in 2003 was the placement of over 780 local veterans on a special Veterans 
Administration Pharmacy Program. The Program allows veterans to receive 30-day supplies of 
prescription drugs by mail for $7.00 saving them thousands of dollars. 

The Veterans Services Office Director is also the Town's Graves Registration and Burial 
Officer. During 2003, sixty-eight Andover veterans died - forty- four were World War JJ veterans, 
sixteen were Korean veterans, twelve were Vietnam veterans and one young many was killed in 
action in Afghanistan. Several of these veterans fought in more than one war. 

According to the latest Federal Government statistics, 2,895 Andover veterans and/or their 
family members received $2,766,483 in Veterans Administration benefits in 2003. 

The Veterans Office is also engaged in an on-going project of identifying and marking all 
veterans' graves and computerizing all burial records within the Town's ten cemeteries. Much of 
this work is being done as Eagle Scout projects with local Boy Scout troops. 

Finally, the Veterans Office has overseen efforts to create and install the Andover World War 
II Memorial in The Park. The monument will be formally dedicated on May 31, 2004. The 
monument and accompanying flagpole are being donated to the Town by two local families.

MISSION STATEMENT 

The mission of the Andover Public Schools, in partnership with the community, 

is to provide students with the knowledge, skill, and qualities 

required to be successful in a diverse society. 

In 2002 the most significant School Department event was the opening of our new schools, High Plain 
Elementary and Wood Hill Middle. One year later our new schools have become a major community center and 
locus of activity in West Andover for the nearly 1,000 children currently enrolled and their families. To our 
Building Committee and several Town Departments (Plant and Facilities, Building Inspector, Police, Fire, and 
Health), we extend much gratitude for a fine partnership in bringing these schools on line within budget and on 
time. Currently, our students and more than 700 professional and support staff are housed in one 9-12 high 
school, three 6-8 middle schools, five K-5 elementary schools, and one PreK-2 controlled choice school. 

As our enrollment projections indicated, our Kindergarten through 12 th grade student population 
reflects a slight decrease in enrollment, from 5,963 in 2002 to 5,925 in 2003. Our preschool enrollment (children 
ages 3-4) increased during this period from 58 in 2002 to 75 children. We anticipate a steady increase in our 
preschool program, as the numbers of young children with special needs grows, and as more parents of typically 
developing children enroll their children. (It is important to note that there is a fee for the non-SPED children for 
this service.) Currently, our preschool is housed at Shawsheen. 

Despite some leveling off, our high school enrollment has been on the increase, rising to 1,739 in 2003, up 
from 1,680 in 2002. Over the next 3 to 4 years our enrollment projections indicate a steady increase in the high 
school population. The high school and central office administration currently are reviewing various options to 
meet this short-term need for increased space at the high school. 

With the reduction in Chapter 70 funding from the State and the slowing of the revenue stream at the 
local level, the School Department eliminated 44.55 positions in 2003. This resulted in the elimination or 
reduction of various programs (health and physical education at the elementary level, integrated arts program in 
middle school, and elective offerings at the high school). At the high school many students were not able to take 
7.5 credits. A group of parents filed a complaint with the Department of Education, stating that the district had 
failed to provide the required 990 instructional hours for all students. As a result, the DOE instructed the district 
to develop a plan to schedule all students into a minimum of 990 hours of direct instruction. That plan was filed 
with the DOE in December 2003. 

SCHOOL COMMITTEE AND CENTRAL OFFICE ADMINISTRATION 

The five elected members of the School Committee typically met twice monthly during the year. Mr. 
Frank Eccles stepped down from the Committee at the end of his second term, and Mr. Art Barber and Mr. Tony 
James were elected, replacing Mr. Eccles and Mr. Gerry Gustus, an incumbent running for his second term. At 
its first meeting following the election, the Committee re-appointed Ms. Tina Girdwood, Chair and Mr. Richard 
Collins, Secretary. In spring 2002 the Superintendent appointed Mr. Brian McNally and Mr. David Nichols, Co- 
Directors of the Athletic Department, to replace Mr. James Hurley who retired in August 2003. During the 
summer, the School Committee approved the Goals and Objectives for the 2003-2004 school year. They arc: 

Over-riding goal: Ensure exemplary schools for our children 

Working Goal: Focus on district theme: Building Learning Communities 

Goal 1: Student Achievement: Base all decisions under the basic assumption that each child is a 

constant learner 

Goal 2: Teacher Quality 

Goal 3: Finances/Budget for coming year 

Goal 4: Communications 

82 



In accordance with the Interest Based Bargaining process agreed upon by the School Committee and the 
Andovcr Education Association, the parties entered into a two-day training session to prepare for contract 
negotiations. The School Committee held its annual Retreat in the summer 2002 at which time they agreed to 
work towards a budget that maintained the current level of services for the short term, and restore services long 
term. The members also agreed to training sessions on the roles and responsibilities of the School Committee. 
The Committee continued to work collaboratively with the Selectmen, Finance Committee, Townwide Task 
Force, and parent organizations. Members of the School Committee began work on enhancing revenues for 
schools, specifically through establishing an education foundation and a grants writing initiative. 

Assistant Superintendent - Curriculum. Instruction. Assessment and Professional Development 

As a school community, we continue to explore best practices for enhancing student achievement at all 
levels. Our overriding goals continue to be to demonstrate progress toward the following: improving the 
instructional capacity to reach and teach all children, providing challenging instruction for all students, 
improving assessment of student progress, and continuing to search out and obtain the most appropriate and 
most rigorous teaching resources to address the state standards and our local benchmark standards. Building on 
the capacity of highly qualified and highly competent educators, the Andover school community has 
accomplished much toward achieving these goals. 

The curriculum leadership as evidenced through the active involvement of the principals, the curriculum 
councils, the building curriculum leaders, and teacher leaders in all subject areas have reviewed and brought 
forward new curriculum programs this year. A textbook adoption in the amount of $191,000 funded acquisition 
of materials to improve and update the programs in mathematics, English/language arts, social studies, and 
science this year. 

Andover students participated in local, state, and national assessments as a demonstration of their 
learning. Students in grades one through eleven participated in local assessments to evaluate their learning in 
mathematics and English/language arts. In grade three through eight and in grade ten, students participated in 
the Massachusetts Comprehensive Assessment System (MCAS) in different subject areas. Andover students 
continued to perform in the top ten districts in the state advancing to seventh place overall. Without exception, 
all students in the 2004 graduation class passed the MCAS test as is required for all graduating students in the 
state. This accomplishment is due to the diligence and resolve of the staff here to align curriculum standards and 
to challenge and support students in their learning. 

In college admission, 96% of Andover High students took the SAT I, college admissions examination. 
One hundred eighty nine students took 323 Advanced Placement examinations. The class of 2003 had three semi- 
finalists and nineteen commended scholars recognized by the National Merit Scholarship Program. In total 97% 
of our students went on to post-secondary education with 95% going on to four-year colleges and universities. 

The professional development program continues to provide staff with learning opportunities to grow in 
the teaching profession. Administrators and staff have been participating in a model of building professional 
learning communities, a vision and model of continuous improvement of teaching skills and content knowledge 
base in order to enhance student achievement. 

All initiatives this year support the advancement of our rigorous, high quality educational program. On 
behalf of the students we teach, the Andover Public School professional staff extends appreciation to the 
community for its ongoing support of this vitally important work.

• Standardized the fee waiver application and review process 

Human Resources Office 

The Human Resource Office plays a major role in recruitment, benefits administration, labor relations 
and staff development and training. Due to severe budgetary constraints, for the first time in over a decade 
recruitment as a basic HR activity did not play a significant role in contributing to the department's workload. 
However, downsizing did. Assistant principals, teachers and support staff were laid off in record numbers. 
Additionally, several instructional assistants were reduced in hours and reassigned throughout the system. These 
decisions greatly impacted the department's workload as human resource staff made every effort to assist with 
these transactions and provide benefit information and counseling to staff being laid off. 

New State and federal statutes drove other major initiatives; notable among them was the passage of "An 
Act Further Protecting Children" and the "No Child Left Behind Act." Under the first noted, the HR resource 
staff conducted Criminal Offender Record Information (COR1) checks for all current school personnel, including 
school volunteers, bus drivers and maintenance workers. "No Child Left Behind", a federal law, requires school 
systems provide to parents a profile of teacher qualifications. HR staff was instrumental in assisting building 
principals in amassing the data needed for this complex report. 

The escalating costs of health care continue to be a concern for all employers. In response, HR staff held 
numerous, small group meetings with employees to better educate them on various cost-saving features of the 
health insurance plans. HR staff also provided technical and administrative support to the Insurance Advisory 
Committee, which is reviewing the organization's response to containing health care costs. 

Labor relations work included contributions to the completion of the Licensed Practical Nurses Contract 
and the Andover Independent Employees' Association's agreement Additionally, the HR Office completed the 
work on the school classification plan, which included the revision of several job descriptions and development of 
comparable salary data based on comprehensive surveys. Employee relation's work included a customer 
satisfaction survey on the employee assistance program offered to employees and training on issues regarding 
harassment and the accommodation of the disabled at work. Furthermore, much time was devoted to responding 
to several Massachusetts Commission Against Discrimination complaints. To date, we have been successful in 
defending the employer's position in all of these related matters. 

We remain steadfast in our goal of providing excellent customer service to our employees and managers. 
To this end, we have created better, more efficient processes in the areas of benefits administration and 
recruitment. Through teamwork and cooperation with other departments, we have focused on eliminating 
redundancies, thus reducing our reliance on paper transactions and manual effort. We continue to transfer much 
information to an electronic format thus creating more efficient database utilization. These transitions have 
made it possible for us to meet the increasing demands for computerized information from internal/external 
customers, as well as state and federal agencies. 

SCHOOL REPORTS:

Social Studies Department: 

The Social Studies Department continues to revise curriculum in line with Massachusetts State Frameworks, 
with particular interest in better coordinating articulation between the middle schools and high school. In 
the summer of 2003, members of the department restructured curricula for AP U.S History and AP European 
History, as well as developing updated instructional materials for Psychology, and Anthropology/Sociology. 
Several social studies teachers received summer training in Chinese Studies at the Peabody Essex Museum. 
One member of the department won a Fulbright scholarship, studying and traveling extensively in Mexico. 
Seven members of the department are currently participating in the Mentoring Program, three as pre- 
profcssional teachers, three as mentors and one as program supervisor. The department also continues to 
develop common files and network resources for instruction and to work on curriculum design for new 
elective courses. In coordination with the Andover Senior Center, AHS social studies students will again 
participate in the Veterans History Project, a Library of Congress program designed to document the 
experiences of local war veterans. 
English Department: 

The English Department continues to reassess its curriculum and course offerings in light of newly revised 
Massachusetts State Frameworks and in anticipation of a completely revised verbal SAT. Substantive, 
positive changes have been made in the last four years, especially in the adoption of more diverse literature 
and the creation of a more effective sequence of skills instruction. High MCAS scores — with no senior 
failures — are one indicator of success. (With the reduction in state grant money from $65,000 to $5,000 for 
after school and summer MCAS tutorials, the department, in cooperation with Dr. Bach, is investigating 
alternatives to deal with this need.) Having analyzed data from its own assessments as well as standardized 
tests, the department would like to do more to improve skills in writing, critical thinking and literary 
analysis, especially in regard to poetry. To this end, subcommittees are currently analyzing MCAS data, 
reassessing grade 9 and grade 10 curricula and developing new courses in SAT verbal preparation, writing 
workshops and filmmaking. Along with a colleague in social studies, a member of the department won a 
Fulbright scholarship, studying and traveling extensively in Mexico. During the current school year, a 
majority of department members are participating in district professional development courses; these include 
the mentoring program and two distinct course offerings conducted by professional poets. 
Counseling Department: 

The Counseling Department was excited to welcome Priscilla Chaves, a Counseling Intern from Rivier 
College and Matthew Conserva, a Counseling Intern from Cambridge College. It was a great honor to have 
Pe ggy Cain elected as a Regional Trustee of the College Board for a four-year term. During the first semester 
the Counseling Department worked diligently with seniors on the college application process. As of 
February, twenty-four hundred transcript requests have been processed of which nineteen hundred were 
complete by December 15'\ Early admission results were encouraging and included acceptances from 
Boston College, Brown University, Cornell University, Dartmouth College, Duke University, Georgetown 
University, University of Pennsylvania, Tufts University and Yale. The addition of the ACT's Discover 
Program, an Internet research-based developmental guidance program has given students the opportunity to 

85 



explore colleges and careers online. The Peer Mediation program trained thirty-five mediators this fall and 
the number of high school students accessing services increased substantially. Sixty-five juniors are 
participating in the Career Mentoring Program, which is a partnership between the high school and the 
Service Club of Andover. The Grief Counseling Group for students who have lost a parent is meeting on a 
weekly basis. A task-oriented group was started this fall to assist at-risk students with time management and 
study skills. The "Choice, Not Chance" College Planning Program continues this spring. Additional services 
include taking the juniors to a National College Fair in Boston, as well as organizing mock college admission 
interviews for the students. 

Doherty Middle School 

Though our student body became larger this year and the faculty continued downward in number, 
Doherty managed to continue its extracurricular program held at the end of each school day. Thanks to the vast 
majority of parents willing to pay a fee, we were able to offer students diverse choices of activities such as clubs in 
art, chess, cooking, drama, French, golf, and games, to name a few. We have twenty-nine club selections plus a 
wide range of sports activities. Because of the generosity of parents, we have been able to offer "scholarships" to 
several students who would otherwise not have been able to participate. 

Doherty continues its constant interaction with parents and other members of the community. Thanks to 
their sense of volunteerism, we have nearly forty individuals manning our library every day from 7:15 until 3:30. 
We also have three elderly gentlemen who are part of the Foster Grandparent program as well as other seniors 
who work behind the scenes in the library. These examples do not include the many parents who serve on 
committees from School Council to interviewing prospective staff. Another form of interaction is the use by all 
the teams of websites and e-mail so parents can keep on top of any and all team information relating to their 
children. 

Doherty is also becoming greatly involved in the subject of Differentiated Instruction. To this end books 
are being read at present and many discussions arc taking place on its use in the classrooms. It is hoped that 
workshops will be available in the summer to gain more knowledge, which will then be dispensed to all. 

West Middle School 

West Middle School focused on welcoming Mr. Brad Morgan to our learning community as our new 
Assistant Principal. Students created a Morgan Madness week and we enjoyed a spirited welcome indeed. 
Earlier in the year we focused on becoming better at technology both in our communication with each other and 
with students and parents. Our West Connection Newsletter is on line and many of the staff use schoolnotes.com 
in order to keep homework and projects up to date through technology. 

The climate and culture at West Middle continues to grow and develop as our after school program 
joined with AYS this year to add some energetic and fun activities in the ZONE to our already busy offerings for 
students after school. We have fully adopted the CMP math program in grade seven with plans to bring it 
forward to grade eight next year. This exciting discovery method, hands-on math is being used in 
hcterogeneously grouped classrooms. Bridge of Kindness continues to grow and be a vital part of bur school 
culture. Learning to give back to the community is part of our mission and vision for our adolescent learners. 

Wood Hill Middle School 

Creativity in the face of budget adversity has been the focus at Wood Hill Middle School. We are 
working toward achieving an optimal middle school concept. Basically, our schedule must provide daily 
opportunities for team teachers to plan for their common group of students. This has become quite a challenge as 
we cut teaching positions. Our librarian has become an integrated arts teacher with a full rotation of students. 
Students no longer have general music or industrial technology. 

Staff has been quite successful in their grant writing efforts. These monetary awards have financed many 
of the enrichments that we provide to our students. Grants have also supported much of our professional 
development Teachers and assistants are adding to their repertoire of differentiated teaching strategies as we 
improve our service delivery in our inclusionary education model. 

Building a strong and supportive school culture is an ongoing opportunity. We have adapted the 
Leadership Institute Curriculum from Camp Kicve to develop our own Project Wood Hill. Students learn to take 
responsibility for creating an environment where each individual is valued. We like to think that this is "The 
Wood Hill Way". 

Bancroft Elementary School 

Our theme this school year is P.l.E.CE.S. - Promoting Individual Excellence and Celebrating 
Everyone's Success. This theme enables us to continue promoting a school atmosphere where all students are 
called upon to be trustworthy, kind, and fair and where all teachers are learning more about differentiated 
instruction and that "one size does not fit all" in regard to classroom instruction. As the students, under the 
tutelage of their teachers, assume an even greater responsibility for their studies and their lives, they will develop 
the natural pride and self-confidence that comes with these accomplishments. To further reinforce our theme we 



have taken a large picture of Bancroft School (4-ft x 8-ft) and divided it into many "pieces." Just as the members 
of our school (students and teachers) all represent individual pieces of our complete puzzle; the actual puzzle 
pieces will visually represent our school coming together as a whole. To accomplish this, every staff member in 
the building has a piece of this puzzle and throughout the year wc will write every child's name on the back of a 
particular piece. At the end of the school year, we will have an assembly where we fit the final pieces of the puzzle 
into place. Complementing this theme is our "Gold T.I.E.S. Program" since it allows us to recognize students 
who have demonstrated critical thinking skills or have improved, excelled or succeeded at any level within the 
school. We have been very pleased with the results of these programs and the students have enjoyed watching 
their school "come together" as the puzzle has slowly taken shape. 

High Plain Elementary School 

Recognizing the 100 tb anniversary of the Wright brothers' flight and our "First Flight" as a new school 
community, High Plain students and staff selected the theme "Soaring with Integrity - Making Dreams Reality"! 
One particularly important dream was realized in the summer of 2003 through the dedicated fund raising of our 
PTO ($42,000) and collaborative support of the School Building Committee. Hundreds of parent volunteers 
devoted their time, talents and energy to construct two new playground sites - one for Kindergarten, and one for 
students in grades one through five. Special thanks for the design and construction plans go to our playground 
committee members: Wendy Bicknell, Jim Gillette, Ellen Clancy, Marianne Merritt, Debbie Stevens, Linda 
Ritchie, Beth Shiff, Meredith Emery, and Stacy Jurewicz. 

Two areas were targeted for school-wide professional development - Balanced Literacy and 
Differentiated Instruction. Time was devoted at each staff meeting for presentations by colleagues on key 
elements of these initiatives, in addition to three half-day workshops with trainer Gary Chadwell on "Writing 
Across the Curriculum". Each grade level has established specific focus correction areas and rubrics for their 
writing program. 

A variety of grant awards, including a $2,000 grant from Philips Medical Systems, enabled support for 
our science program and Community Outreach. Family Literacy programs were offered at Riverview Commons, 
Brooksidc Estates, and High Plain. High Plain also had the privilege of hosting The Mary French Yellow Rose 
Award ceremony in the new courtyard garden dedicated in memory of Mary's devotion and service to the 
children of Andover. We appreciate the commitment and support of the parents, students, staff and community 
volunteers who have so rapidly built the spirit of a new school community. 

Henry C. Sanborn Elementary School 

Last spring the Sanborn staff selected the theme Our Children, Our School, Our Future for the 2003-04 
school year. In many ways this theme recognizes our understanding that in tight financial times we have to 
depend on our own school community to establish priorities and to use all of the available funds to target specific, 
achievable goals. This year we specifically highlight the work of our PTO and the importance that we place on 
community service. 

Through the work of more than thirty committees, the Sanborn PTO raises and spends approximately 
$25,000.00 per year to enhance our programs in a variety of ways. PTO funds promote and sponsor enrichment 
activities at each grade level that are directly related to our curriculum and cannot be funded through our 
operating budget The highlight of our enrichment activities this year was an artist in residence program, 
Children's Stage Adventures, which involved sixty of our students in a wonderful production of The Sword Called 
Excalibur. In addition, workshops on Creative Dramatics and Concentration Exercises were conducted with each 
of our students. PTO funds also support staff development activities and were our primary source for upgrading 
our Library collection, with approximately $10,000.00 spent annually. In addition, more than two hundred 
parents are counted upon to volunteer their time in our classrooms. 

The spirit of Community so evident in our parents is one that we foster in our students as well. Each of 
our students in grades four and five serves for one month on our Student Council. While promoting school spirit, 
Student Council members also engage in community service projects. Highlights for the year to date include 
collecting 777 children's books which were donated to Lawrence General Hospital, raising $2,300.00 which was 
donated to the Greater Boston Food Bank and used to buy turkeys for needy families last Thanksgiving, 
contributing more than 300 toys to the annual Toys for Tots campaign, and writing letters to our servicemen and 
women stationed in Iraq. Our most important Sanborn tradition, the Harvest Festival, celebrated its twenty-fifth 
anniversary. More than 240 gift bags were delivered to Andover senior citizens. Mary Guziejka, who began this 
annual celebration, returned as our guest speaker and all of our students performed in an intergenerational 
program with the Sun Rise Singers from the Senior Center. 

On behalf of our present and future students, we thank to the citizens of Andover for your continued 
support During the month of December, I received two contributions from Sanborn families totaling $10,000 that 
will be used in our continuing effort to upgrade our library collection. Another family has donated a complete set 
of the 2003 World Book Encyclopedia. On behalf of our present and future students, we thank the citizens of 
Andover, our Sanborn PTO, our town and school employees, our loyal cadre of volunteers and our many private 
benefactors for your continued support §7 



Shawsheen Primary School 

Shawsheen truly became a primary school this year with the addition of another preschool classroom, 
which had been based at Sanborn since last January. The Andover Public Preschool program is an integrated 
language-based, developmental!}' appropriate program offered to Andover residents. In compliance with federal 
and state mandates, the district must specifically search for and provide services for students identified with 
special needs when they turn 3 years old. An integrated program includes both students with needs and same age 
peers. (Peers pay a fee to attend). Our preschool program presently consists of two full day and four half-day 
sessions, (72 students) with a need for another class. Having all six sessions housed in one location allows for team 
planning, better scheduling for therapists and the ability to plan activities and cultural events for a primary 
audience. With a second full day kindergarten class, and two half-day sessions, Shawsheen is 'beaming' with 276 
students. An additional 37 preschoolers have weekly appointments with therapists at Shawsheen. 

The Golden Rule continued to be the over-arching theme at Shawsheen, with a yearlong school-wide 
theme of 'Endangered Animals' ending in the spring and a new theme of 'Space' beginning in September. As it 
did last year, the PTO sponsored teacher meetings for planning over the summer. Second graders visited the 
Museum of Science and Sky Lab came to school for all the classes. Cultural events, including local author and 
illustrator Laura Secley, the Brown Bag Opera and storyteller Susan Lenoue were sponsored by the PTO. 
Shawsheen sponsored a young team for Destination Imagination and these primary students won the award for 
Most Original! Parent volunteers continue to be an integral part of the Shawsheen Community, helping in the 
library, classrooms, with fund-raising and with publishing our students' work. A beautification committee was 
recently formed to plan for plantings around the school premises. 

All teachers at Shawsheen are trained in Balanced Literacy and all classes are working in reading blocks 
to work with and meet the needs of the individual students in their classrooms. Again, the generosity of the PTO 
allowed for the purchase of many leveled books for the reading room, classrooms and library, along with 
classroom furniture and preschool supplies. First and second grade classes were paired with kindergarten and 
pre-school classes for projects and special activities. Many teachers continued their professional development in 
literacy by enrolling in writing, poetry and phonics courses. 

A new heating system was installed over the summer, replacing the old radiators and pipes. No summer 
activities were planned at the school so that the work crews would have access to the entire building. As part of 
the safety program, our Crisis Team joined the other schools in preparing a school plan (ours is specific to 
Shawsheen). Crisis kits have been assembled for all schools. Shawsheen had a keyless entry security system 
installed so that all doors arc locked and visitors have to be seen by a camera before gaining entrance. Everyone 
has been supportive of this method. 

South Elementary School 

"Stepping Into the Future with South School" set the theme for this school year at South Elementary and 
welcoming 553 students. The theme provided the staff and students with many learning opportunities that were 
meaningful and enriching. Our school beliefs of respect, responsibility, diversity, and life-long learning continue 
to be our guiding values. South is a community of learners and leaders. We are a diverse staff with different 
talents, strengths, and interests. A common bond between us is a love of children and a strong commitment to 
their development Our students have diverse backgrounds, challenges, and strengths. 

In order to continue to make these opportunities successful, we have to recognize the tremendous 
contributions of our parents, teachers, staff members, and business partners. In a year when the budget at the 
elementary schools has been significantly cut, it is the high energy, tireless work ethic, and commitment of these 
professionals and volunteers that have kept us achieving at high level. The following are some of the highlights of 
our school year: 

• Highly involved and highly structured networks of parent/teacher and community committees that 
traditionally work closely with South staff and students. Examples include teaching before/after school 
enrichment clubs, serving on PTO committees, and planning cultural events. 

• An instructional philosophy focused on learning-centered classrooms. Three themes that are evident are 
high challenges, active learning, and diversified instruction. State of the art staff development is based on 
the model: teachers as learners, teachers as researchers, and teachers as trainers 

• Integration of technology is key at South. Students and teachers use technology in all curriculum areas 
expanding across all grade levels. Our goal is to use technology to further a learning community and 
know that students feel comfortable using it as a learning tool to move student achievement Current 
technological initiatives include multimedia presentations, portable keyboards, laptops for students 1:1 
and mobile cart, computerized parent conference sheets, and a parent voice messaging system. 

• A documented record of superior student achievement attested to by Andover's mid-year and yearly 
assessments and MCAS State Tests. 

• An active student government through which students have an opportunity to have a voice in the school. 
Committees include: The Spirit Committee, which focuses on school morale; The Community Service 



Committee, which investigates ways in which South School students can reach out to others; and The 
Student Issues Committee, which develops school improvement ideas. 

• Beyond the Basics - a before- and after-school enrichment program that offers a wide variety of courses 
to students in the entire school. Some of the topics of study include Problem Solving Strategies, Ancient 
Civilizations, Junior Great Books, Cooperative Games, Math Games Around the World, Chess, Spanish, 
French, Artistic Poetry, Caldecott Kids, Origami, Recycled Paper Art, Karate, Computer Software 
Exploration, Homework Helpers, and Babysitting Course. Over 200 students participate on a yearly 
basis. 

• Play - students in grades 3, 4 and 5 perform in a full-scale musical each spring. During the 2002-03 
school year, 32 students presented a western-themed musical entitled, Mary Poppins.. 

• Math Olympiad - a foundation which provides opportunities for children to engage in creative problem- 
solving activities which develop a child's ability to reason, to be logical, to be resourceful, and 
occasionally to be ingenious. South School's team is comprised of 35 fourth and fifth graders. A cadre of 
volunteer parents has directed this program this year. 

Our successful year was centered in the tremendous contributions provided by the Andover community, 
and we are grateful for your support 

West Elementary School 

West Elementary School students once again engaged in a number of academic and community-wide 
activities that extended beyond the regular curriculum and the school day. Our Jump Rope for Heart event 
raised $20,402.99, making West Elementary the number one fundraiser among the New England Affiliate 
participants. The Easter Seals Shoot Out again raised more than $3,500 for that worthy cause. West 
Elcmentary's Math Olympiad teams continued to do well by once again placing in the top ten percent of all 
participating schools, including those who have sixth grade team members. WERAWC, West Elementary 
Readers and Writers Conference, held in March, featured writers Gloria Bowen, Judith Hilner, Greg Maguire, 
Peggy Rambach, Greg Tang, and Mark Sasha. 

The student council collected goods for the People's Pantry and The Community Day Care Program in 
Lawrence. West Elementary also has a council sponsored school store that raises money for student activities, a 
Bcforc-School Enrichment Program, Grade 4/5 Chorus, Grade 3 Chorus, Chess Club, Destination Imagination, 
Wyeth Institute Science Enrichment program. Johns Hopkins Talent Search, and Buddies-Upper grade classes 
paired with primary classes. The second phase of the West Elementary Asbestos Abatement Project was 
completed. Half of the 1970 addition was redone. New floor tiles, new ceiling tiles, new heating vents, and all new 
lighting were installed. The final phase of the project is scheduled for the summer of 2004. 

SCHOOL DISTRICT DEPARTMENTS: 

Pupil Personnel Department 

The Pupil Personnel Administration continued to oversee the provision of special education services to 
over 900 identified students, between the ages of 3 and 22. Programs were available to address a broad range of 
educational disabilities from mild to moderate learning disabilities to severe, multiple handicaps. To the extent 
possible, special education students attended their neighborhood school and participated with their typically 
developing peers in the general education setting. In 2003, a new preschool classroom was added and two existing 
programs at the middle school level were reconfigured. The preschool classroom began in January at the 
Sanborn School and later joined the other preschool classes at the Shawshecn School in September. The new 
class was needed in order to provide for the large number of disabled children who transitioned out of early 
intervention programs during the year as they turned three years old. At Dohcrty Middle School the Learning 
Center was reorganized in order to be more responsive to a changing population of students with learning 
challenges and at Wood Hill Middle School the Seaport Program was redefined to provide the students with a 
more integrated and inclusive experience. The Department also continued its commitment to returning students 
to the district from out-of-district programs and a number of students successfully made the transition. In 
addition, a number of instructional assistants were hired so that students with serious disabilities could remain at 
their local schoolhouse and avoid outside placement. Pupil Personnel continued its efforts to improve the 
capacity of the Andover Public Schools to be responsive to the needs of an increasingly diverse student population 
and provided a number of training opportunities for both special and general educators. The goal of special 
education remains to provide identified students with the necessary strategies and skills so that they may function 
as independent and contributing members of their school and community. 

Health Education Department 

Andover's Health Education Program implements a Health Education curriculum that reinforces the 
relationship between optimal health and physical, mental, and emotional well-being. Andover Schools include 
exemplary scientifically based research programs in their curriculum. The Life Skill Training Program 
addresses a wide range of risk and protective factors by teaching general personal and social skills in combination 



with drug resistance skills and formative education. Life skills are a universal, primary, school-based drug abuse 
prevention program that targets children and adolescents. The goal of the program is to prevent tobacco, 
alcohol, and drug abuse among adolescents. The three major content areas are personal self-management skills, 
general social skills and drug resistance skills and information. The underlying rationale of this program is based 
on the premise that preventing drug use with younger populations will ultimately reduce the prevalence of drug 
use among these same individuals as they become older. This program is utilized for all Andover students in 
Grades 3 through 8. 

Andover addresses its comprehensive Health Education with a special emphasis on community linkages. 
Community Network Teams such as The Community Health Advisory Team, Parent to Parent, Andover 
C.A.R.E.S. and Andover's Youth Council meet to build safe schools and communities. The student's needs and 
interests are supported in many ways by a number of student organizations and clubs in the Andover Public 
Schools, GUTS - Growing Up Taking A Stand, SADD - Students Against Destructive Decisions, Peer Leadership, 
Kids For Kids, Gay/Straight Alliance, GLAM - Girls Leaders Advocates & Mentors, BLAM - Boys Leaders 
Advocates & Mentors, and Project Teamwork all have a strong presence in our schools and community. These 
leadership groups promote advocacy and support for our young people. 

Fine and Performing Arts Department 

The Arts Program continues to be a robust component of the student educational experience. In total 
367 students in grades three through twelve pursued instrumental study. Both instrumental students and vocal 
students continued to participate through the audition process for district and state ensembles and earned the 
following awards: two AIIS students were selected for All State, six students were chosen for the Senior District 
competition, and thirty students participated in the Junior District 

In the visual arts, Andover High School students' work was submitted to the Boston Globe Art 
Competition and earned the following awards: two silver keys, one gold key, four honorable mentions. Two 
students were nominated for the Art All-State Competition with one portfolio nominee. Additionally thirty-two 
students participated in the art exhibit sponsored by the Andover Historical Society entitled the Continuing 
Contemporary Series. 

Andover High School once again hosted the first round of the Massachusetts High School Drama Guild's 
One-Act Theater Competition. Nine high schools participated. Andover High's entry was a humorous 
contemporary play by David Ives called Seven Menus. The AIIS musical production of this year Les Miserables, a 
most challenging production, met with rave reviews. The Drama Guild produced the comedy The Chopin 
Playoffs in May and June. Lastly the Student Directed Play Festival took place in the television studio and 
included three student-directed/ student-written plays performed. The Guild also hosted a stage combat 
workshop with Fight Director, Richard Hedderman in the winter. 

Technology Department 

Andover Public School Technology Program serves 6000 students and 1000 faculty, support staff, and 
administrative users through the district-wide computer network. Our computer network and staff also supports 
the Town Plant and Facilities Department with the monitoring of town buildings' mechanical and heating 
systems. The Technology Department continues to assist with the integration of technology into the learning 
environment. Our goals remain to enhance and enrich student learning with technology so our students can 
access, collect, authenticate, manage, assess, and analyze information effectively, efficiently, and ethically. During 
the past year, the Technology Department has experienced severe budgetary cutbacks that have greatly 
challenged us with the upgrading of our aging computer base. Over 800 of our Macintosh computers (75 Mhz to 
225 Mhz) are 7 years old or older. Another 150 HP Pentium I computers (200 Mhz) are 6 years old and our 258 
Gateway PI I are now 5 years old. 

In an attempt to meet the needs of our students and employees, we have during the past year: 

• Down-sized the AHS Applied Technology Department and, to meet the needs of the Science Department, 
the Applied Technology computer lab in Room 322 was dismantled, the computers (Gateway PII 400 
Mhz) re-imaged, and moved to the Media Center to serve as the Social Studies Department computer 
lab. 

• The existing Social Studies computer lab (HP Pentium I 200 Mhz) located in AHS Room 243 was 
dismantled to provide additional classroom space. These computers were then re-imaged and moved into 
AHS classrooms replacing older Digital 133 Mhz computers. The DEC computers have been retired. 

• Repurposed and re-imaged 27 Doherty Middle School's seven year old Macintosh 5500 (225 Mhz) 
computers to South Elementary School Macintosh Computer lab replacing their eight year old 
Macintosh 5200 (75/1 00 Mhz) computers. 

• Repurposed and re-imaged the existing South Elementary School Computer lab's eight year old 
Macintosh 5200 (75/100 Mhz) computers to South Elementary Classrooms. 

90 



• Repurposed and re-imaged 27 West Middle School's seven year old Macintosh 5500 (225 Mhz) 
computers to Sanborn Elementary School Macintosh Computer lab replacing their eight year old 
Macintosh 5200 (75/100 Mhz) computers. 

• Repurposed and re-imaged Sanborn Elementary School's eight year old Macintosh 5200 (75/100 Mhz) to 
Doherty Middle School replacing the 27 - nine year old Macintosh 575 (33 Mhz) computers. 

• Repurposed and re-imaged the 27 - nine year old Macintosh 575 (33 Mhz) computers to Doherty 
classrooms. We will no longer maintain Macintosh 575 computers- decommissioning Mac 575 as they 
faU. 

• Updated bios, re-imaged with latest patches and upgrades, and renamed all 1800 Intel/Windows 
computers to conform to the new Active Directory naming conventions. 

• Updated and cleansed student-owned laptops of spywarc and adware. 

• Increased bandwidth to Internet by leasing two Tl lines from MECnct. Tl lines are being paid for by a 
S37.000 grant through the Schools and Libraries E-Rate program. 

• Upgraded all 36 Servers from Windows NT 4.0 to Windows 2000 with Active Directory. 

• Implemented My Learning Plan. This online professional development data base enables teachers to view 
and enroll in Andovcr professional development courses, tracks teacher progress, assists instructors with 
course management, and provides effective and efficient program management by the administration. 

• Continued the Student Purchase Laptop program. 

Physical Education Department 

The calendar year 2003 was one of highs and lows for the physical education department. The high point 
came when the elementary physical education program was recognized by the Massachusetts Association for 
Health, Physical Education, Recreation, and Dance as the state program of the year. The low point came at the 
end of the school year in June with the lay-off of eight of the department's twenty-seven teachers and significant 
cuts to the program. The current school year started with a new venture, a partnership was formed between the 
Andover physical education department and the Merrimack College business department. Over the course of 
two weekends in September approximately 240 incoming freshmen to the Merrimack College business 
department went through an eight-hour Project Challenge program run by members of the Andover High School 
physical education department. The program was a huge success and this partnership looks to keep growing next 
school year as well. 

Athletic Department 

The Athletic Department is committed to the philosophy that participants are students first and athletes 
second. Interscholastic athletics is a co-curricular activity with the practice and contest arena serving as an 
extension of the classroom. Along with the skills and strategies of their particular sport coaches have the 
responsibility to teach the values associated with discipline, teamwork, commitment, accountability, citizenship, 
confidence, leadership and striving towards excellence. The Boston Globe ranked Andover as second in the state 
in combined boys and girls winning percentage. The girls won the Division 1 State Basketball Championship in 
dramatic fashion at the Worcester Centrum under the leadership of head coach Jim Tildsley. Coach Peter 
Comeau's girls outdoor track team won the Massachusetts Class A State Track and Field Championship. The 
girls swimming and diving team won their fifth straight Massachusetts State Championship led by Coach 
Marilyn Fitzgerald at Harvard University. 

Respectfully submitted, 



Dr. Claudia L. Bach 
Superintendent of Schools

GREATER LAWRENCE TECHNICAL SCHOOL 



The Greater Lawrence Technical School is a regional vocational secondary institution 
serving the communities of Andover, Lawrence, North Andover and Methuen. Approximately 
1,450 students attend the school - seventeen of which reside in the Town of Andover. The 
school is in its third years of an extensive building expansion and renovation project. The $51 
million project will add 91,000 square feet of laboratory, classroom and athletic space to the 
institution. The grounds of the campus are also being landscaped. The landscaping involves 
planting of new trees and lawns and the refurbishing of athletic fields and tennis courts. The 
Building Expansion and Renovation Project will not only enhance education for its students but 
improve the school as a community and corporate resource. 

Several years ago, the school restructured to a five-academy model working with the 
High Schools That Work consortium. The purpose of the restructuring was to improve academic 
services and improve students' academic abilities and performance on the MCAS. The Class of 
2003 had the highest retest (96%) success on the MCAS statewide. The restructuring experience 
has connected career areas and academic programs for the purpose of preparing graduates for 
their challenging roles as adults. 

The school's website which was launched last year won the Golden Web Award. The 
website will hopefully recruit more students from the region and provide the public with up-to- 
date information about the school. The school operates from a perspective that it is a community 
of learners connected to service and excellence. Once again, the school provides curriculum- 
connected community projects at considerable savings to its feeder districts. 

The Building Expansion and Renovation Project, upon completion, will accommodate 
1,600 students in a state-of-the-art vocational-technical school campus. The students will work 
in career areas that will prepare them for the demands and expectations of industry. The mission 
of the school is to provide successful graduates to the four communities that will continue to 
improve the quality of life that we have come to expect.

ANDOVER PRESERVATION COMMISSION 

The Andover Preservation Commission endeavors to fulfill its mission to advise the town 
concerning the preservation of its historic and archeological resources and has been active in the 
following areas 

Demolition Delay Bylaw: 

The Commission heard demolition requests for four properties this year and imposed delays 
of zero to twelve months. Ten buildings, some from prior years, await demolition. An emergency 
demolition was required for one building due to fire damage. Twenty-three applications were 
reviewed for historic appropriateness. 

Dimensional Special Permit/Historic Preservation : 
Two requests were submitted and approved. 

Local Historic Districts: 



The BallardVale Local Historic District Commission (BHLDC) continues its work in 
hearing proposals and advising residents about the design of historically sensitive changes to 
buildings in that district. The Preservation Commission and the BHLDC work cooperatively on 
issues of mutual interest. 

Heritage Education: 

The 13 th Annual Andover Preservation Awards were held in May of 2003 at Memorial Hall 
Library in cooperation with the Andover Historical Society and the BallardVale Historic District 
Commission to recognize outstanding examples of historic preservation in the community. Ten 
property owners received recognition for their efforts. 

Projects of Note: 

Two important goals were met this past year. Voters at the Annual Town Meeting passed 
the Dimensional Special Permit/Historic Preservation Bylaw and amended the Demolition Delay 
period from six months to twelve months. These two bylaws now allow more options to enable and 
ensure historic preservation. The Commission will continue to develop goals and pursue action 
plans to better preserve community character. 

Acting in their advisory capacity, the Commission is planning to develop educational 
materials for the public. These materials will help people understand the meaning of historic 
preservation for the individual building owner, assist them in selecting appropriate materials and 
understand the benefits of using these materials and options when cost is an issue. The Commission 
is always willing to consult with building owners on their historic preservation projects. 

The Commission, in collaboration with the Andover Historical Society and Memorial Hall 
Library, will be working on updating and adding to the Andover Historic Building Survey. This 
important local resource is a general survey of Andover's historic buildings and ranges from the late 
1 7th century through the early 20th century. The goal is to have this information available on-line. 

The Commission remains vitally interested in the downtown, its historic buildings and 
character. Preservation of this unique historic sense will attract businesses and customers.

ANDOVER COMMISSION ON DISABILITY 

The mission of the Andover Commission on Disability is to address Andover's needs for 
the town, its residents, visitors, friends, employers and families relative to disability. 

The Andover Commission on Disability is a commission of nine volunteers serving three- 
year terms and appointed by the Board of Selectmen to advocate on disability-related issues. The 
majority (5) of the commission members must be disabled or directly related to disability. The 
goals of the Commission are as follows: 

To advocate for the full integration and participation of people with disabilities in the Town 

of Andover. 

To research the needs and problems of people with disabilities in the Town of Andover. 

To advise and assist Town officials and employees in addressing the needs of people with 

disabilities. 

To provide information, referral, guidance and technical assistance to individuals, public 

agencies, businesses and organizations in matters pertaining to disability. 

To participate to the maximum extent possible in disability-related programs of a local, 

regional, State and Federal nature. 

To support training related to disability to people who reside or work in the Town of 

Andover. 

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY 

The Commission's role continues to be one of advocacy and its focus remains on 
bringing the Town into compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990. In 
addition, the Commission addresses issues that are brought to their attention by residents with 
disabilities. This work is totally dependent on relationships with Town management and staff as 
well as service providers on the State and local level. The Commission supports all age groups. 
They broadened their coverage of Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) ACCESS Projects 
aimed at specific age groups by including projects to support children (Playgrounds), youths 
(ADA Review of the Youth Center) and seniors (Senior's Advocacy). The Commission 
provided Town employee training, assisted the Memorial Hall Library irt securing a $30,000 
grant for ADA improvements and reviewed buildings for ADA Compliance from Blueprint 
phase to Punch List phase to existing older buildings phase. This year, the Commission 
expanded these reviews to include buildings in the private sector. The Commission's partnership 
with the Andover Police Department continues for the HP Parking Program. 

SUMMARY OF PROJECTS 

SENIOR CENTER 

A member of the commission is assigned to the Senior Center to inform and advocate on 
relevant issues such as access, mobility, transportation, services, etc., specifically as they impact 
our older residents. The Commission will continue this valuable relationship with the staff and 
seniors particularly in relation to the anticipated relocation of services.

ADA ACCESSIBLE PLAYGROUNDS 

The Commission believes that children of all abilities should be able to play together. 
This year they not only researched the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) Accessibility 
Guidelines for Play Areas but also looked at the Town's playgrounds in terms of their 
amusement value. Although the High Plain Elementary School playground (currently the only 
location in town) meets these ADA Accessibility Guidelines, the Commission is looking into 
other components that could be feasibly added to improve its "fun for all". The Commission 
plans to add accessible equipment in the coming year. 

ADA MONITORING OF TOWN BUILDINGS 

The Commission's follow-up to their ADA compliance check of the Police Department at 
the new Public Safety Center was completed with adjustments made to the priority listing. In like 
manner, when completed, the Fire Department will be reviewed with the purpose of checking for 
compliance with specifications of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and the State 
Architectural Access Board (AAB). The Commission will again enlist the expertise of 
professional reviewers from the Northeast Independent Living Program, Inc. for assistance with 
this review. The findings of the review team will be incorporated in the "punch list" of items to 
be completed within the construction project timelines. The ADA Transition Plan for Schools 
(revised in 2002) continues to be addressed by the Plant and Facilities Department. The 
Commission also reviewed the Youth Center blueprints and provided feedback of its findings. 

CURB CUT/SIDEWALK PROJECT/ACCESS PROJECT IN THE PRIVATE SECTOR 

The ACOD has consistently maintained "access" as an important part of its mission. In 
1999, the Commission set the review of sidewalks and curbs prohibiting access to the main 
streets and services in Andover center as its priority project. This was done to compliment the 
Main Street Project proposal. The Commission is an official liaison to the Main Street 
Committee which is soon to reach its goals. To further support this Town improvement project, 
a photographic study of all the thresholds of Main Street merchants was completed, clearly 
indicating the physical barriers to disabled customers. The Commission will continue to 
advocate and educate for changes in this area of the private sector and not covered in the project 
funding. In addition, the ACOD advocates for suitable access accommodations through the 
Department of Public Works which allows us to designate $25,000 in their maintenance budget. 

HANDICAP PARKING TICKETING PROGRAM 

In response to a growing concern over misuse of handicapped parking spaces and other 
areas specifically designated for handicapped access, the ACOD entered into a partnership with 
the Andover Police Department to have certain Commission members authorized to enforce 
these parking privileges. Using instant cameras to document violations, the trained volunteers 
issue affidavits when vehicles are parked in violation of Town By-Laws. The Police 
Department's Parking Control Supervisor then mails copies of this evidence along with a $100 
parking ticket to the violator. 



95 



ADA TRAINING FOR TOWN EMPLOYEES 

Michael Muehe, Executive Director of the Cambridge Office on Disability, presented two 
training sessions to approximately twenty-six of the Town and School's department heads and 
supervisors on "The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and Employment". The main 
focus of the training was to share information on ADA and provide information regarding the 
Town's responsibility as an employer. Topics discussed included: identifying and implementing 
reasonable accommodations, undue hardship and essential functions of the job and enforcement 
of the ADA. Town employees actively engaged in question and answer sessions and received 
handout information including a valuable resource directory. A public forum was also offered 
through the Division of Community Services. 

COLLABORATION WITH OTHER ADVOCATES 

The ACOD works closely with the Massachusetts Office on Disability and the Northeast 
Independent Living Program, Inc. to advocate on the issues of individuals. The Commission 
provides information on equal rights of access to services, legal assistance, accommodation, 
employment and special circumstances. This assistance is provided in strict confidentiality and 
in collaboration with the above-named agencies. The Commission has provided individual 
consultation and advocacy on personal disability issues, researching the appropriate resources to 
handle the specific problem, referring the case to appropriate providers and following up on the 
resolution of the problem.

MARGARET G. TOWLE FUND 

Under the terms of her will, the late Margaret G. Towle, long-time resident of Andover, 
bequeathed the residue of her estate to the Town of Andover, to be held and administered by it as a 
permanent trust fund. This trust is now known as the Margaret G. Towle Fund. Mrs. Towle 
stipulated in her will that the income from this fund "be devoted to the assistance of the procurement 
of assistance for worthy persons residing in the Town of Andover who may be in need of aid, 
comfort or support on account of old age, disability or unemployment." 

The Fund is administered by a group of three Trustees, chosen by the Town Manager with the 
approval of the Board of Selectmen, which has disbursed the income from the Fund in accordance 
with the terms of Mrs. Towle's will. The cases are referred to the Trustees by private charitable 
groups and organizations, the Clergy and interested individuals. 

During the twelve month period, the Trustees acted on thirteen (13) cases, disbursing 
$50,999.16 on approved cases (which numbered 10) and small administration expenses. Only the 
income of the Fund is available. The principal of $345,825.50 and a substantial portion of the 
current income is invested under the direction of the Trustees. All disbursements are made by the 
Town Treasurer upon vouchers approved by the Trustees.

Massachusetts to permit the use of all types of fuel for heating, cooking or electrical purposes. Three 
Trustees, with staggered terms approved by vote at the Annual Town Meeting, administer the funds. 
The Trustees approved one application during the year.

7.9. Dimensional Special Permit - Historic Preservation . 

7.9.1. Purpose and Intent: 

155 



ANNUAL TOWN MEETING - APRIL 28, 29, 2003 

The purpose of this by-law is to encourage the preservation of buildings, structures, sites and settings 
of historic significance, by allowing such buildings or features to remain in place, or be moved to 
another location rather then be demolished or otherwise compromised. The by-law gives the Board of 
Appeals authority to issue a special permit modifying certain dimensional standards for the creation of 
new lots, or for the use of existing lots for purposes of preservation of historic structures or buildings 
as defined herein. 

7.9.2. Historic Structures Defined: 

For purposes of a Dimensional Special Permit for Historic Preservation the historic building or 
structure must be located in the Town of Andover and must be listed on one of the following: 

1 . The National Register of Historic Places; 

2. The State (Commonwealth of Massachusetts) Register of Historic Places; and 

3. The Andover Historic Building Survey. 

7.9.3. Parent Parcel Defined: 

A parent parcel is the parcel of land that is to be divided. 

7.9.4. Standards and Regulations: 

The following specific standards shall be applied to a dimensional special permit for historic 
preservation: 

1 . The lot must be located in the SRA, SRC or SRB zoning district. 

2. Any new lot created under this by-law in any single family residential zoning district shall 
contain not less than one-half the minimum lot area for the zoning district in which it is 
proposed, and such minimum lot area shall be contiguous upland, free of wetlands. 

3. Lot frontage and building setbacks on new lots created under this by-law shall be as follows: 

a. In the SRA district: Frontage 50 feet; Front - 25 feet; Side - 10 feet; Rear 30 feet; 

b. In the SRB district: Frontage 75 feet; Front - 35 feet; Side - 15 feet; Rear 30 feet; 

c. In the SRC district: Frontage 100 feet; Front - 35 feet; Side - 20 feet; Rear 30 feet. 

4. Any new lot created under this by-law shall have its required frontage on a public way as 
measured at the street line. 

5. Any new lot created under this by-law in the Single Residence A or Single Residence B zoning 
district, shall be served by municipal sanitary sewer and water. 

6. Any new lot created under this by-law in the Single Residence C zoning district shall be served 
by municipal water, and if sanitary sewer is not available the lot shall be in fact capable of 
supporting an on-site sewage disposal system, or in the event that said lot is not serviced by 
municipal sanitary sewer and water at the ti$^of the zoning board hearing, but the zoning 



ANNUAL TOWN MEETING - APRIL 28, 29, 2003 

board finds that sewer will be available, the zoning board shall make as a condition of its 
approval that no occupancy permit shall issue until the lot is serviced by municipal sanitary 
sewer and water. 

7. Other than when there is an existing historic structure on the parent parcel which is the subject 
of a related special permit application, no new lot may be created that would render the parent 
parcel of land non-conforming with regard to dimensional requirements, including but not 
limited to area and frontage. 

8. A vacant existing non-conforming lot need not meet the standards set forth in sections 1 
through 3 above; however, the provisions of 4 and 5 will apply. 

9. The special permit granting authority shall determine whether or not a historic structure or 
building can be placed on a lot without detrimental effect on abutting properties or the street on 
which the lot has its frontage. 

7.9.5. Findings Required: 

Priority in granting a Dimensional Special Permit for Historic Preservation shall, in all cases, be placed 
upon keeping buildings and structures in place, rather than moving them to other locations, provided 
that the existing site can be shown to represent valid historical setting and context. Moving of 
structures or buildings to other locations shall be considered only if no other preservation measures are 
practical or reasonable on the existing site, or if the proposed removal is to return a building or 
structure to an original or more historically accurate location. 

In addition to the findings required under Section 9.4.2. of the zoning by-law and the foregoing 
standards and regulations, the permit granting authority shall consider the following specific items: 

1 . That the modification of dimensional requirements is necessary to protect, preserve or maintain 
a historic structure or building; 

2. That the proposed work, including any relocation or reconstruction, preserves, to the maximum 
extent feasible, the historical and architectural features of the structure or building; 

3. That in the absence of a special permit, destruction of a historic structure or building will result. 

7.9.6. Conditions to be Imposed: 

If the zoning board of appeals grants the special permit, it shall impose, as minimum conditions, the 
following: 

1 . In the event of a catastrophic event which results in damage to the historic structure such that 

the historic structure cannot be repaired, the owner may rebuild on the lot provided that the new 
dwelling does not contain more than the same interior floor area as the historic structure and 
meets one of the following requirements: 

a. the new dwelling is placed in the existing footprint; or 

b. the new dwelling is built in conformity with the zoning side, front and rear setbacks in 
effect at the time of rebuilding 

157 



ANNUAL TOWN MEETING - APRIL 28, 29, 2003 

2. Prior to the move the Board of Selectman, of the Town of Andover shall approve the route and 
the timing of the move of the building or structure. 

3. In the event that the owner of the lot wishes to make changes to the historic structure after it is 
relocated, it must submit any changes to the Preservation Commission for its review and 
approval. If the Preservation Commission determines that the change is not a minor change, the 
owner must seek a modification of the special permit from the Zoning Board. 

4. Upon the appeal period expiring, the applicant shall submit the approved plan to the Planning 
Board for an "approval not required endorsement" Pursuant to Chapter 41, Section 81P of the 
General Laws. Such an endorsement shall be a condition of the special permit approval. 

5. The owner shall record at the Essex North District Registry of Deeds an Historic Preservation 
Restriction in the form approved by the zoning board of appeals, and approved and endorsed by 
the Massachusetts Historical Commission in accordance with Chapter 184, Section 32, of the 
General Laws, which shall at a minimum provide for conditions under which alterations, 
additions or modifications may be made, and in the event of damage to the historic structure 
such that the historic structure cannot be repaired, the owner may rebuild on the lot provided 
that the new dwelling does not contain more than the same interior floor area as the historic 
structure and meets one of the following requirements: (i) the new dwelling is placed in the 
existing footprint; or (ii) the new dwelling is built in conformity with the zoning side, front and 
rear setbacks in effect at the time of rebuilding. Any mortgagee shall subordinate its mortgage 
to this restriction. 

6. When the decision of the Board of Appeals on the application for a dimensional special permit 
for historic preservation has become final, the applicant shall submit the plan upon which the 
decision is based to the Planning Board for certification as an Approval Not Required plan 
pursuant to Chapter 81, Section 41 P of the General Laws. The Notice of Decision of the Board 
of Appeals, the approved and endorsed Historic Preservation Restriction with any required 
mortgagee subordination, and the Approval Not Required plan certified by the Planning Board 
shall be recorded concurrently at the Essex North District Registry of Deeds.
